Aunt Severe and the Dragons

By Nick Garlick
Illustrated by Nick Maland

Uproar ensues when a boy finds four runaway young dragons in his garden

When Daniel's explorer parents vanish, he is forced to live with his strict and rather strange Aunt Severe. And his problems only increase when Daniel finds four lost dragons hiding in her garden. But before he can help, three of them are captured by evil Gotcha Grabber and thrown into a zoo. And so, with the help of Dud - the shy and clumsy fourth dragon - Daniel sets out to rescue them.

  • Great story for emerging readers, with dragons, bullies and lots of adventure.
  • Ideal for young fans of Cressida Cowell.
  • Beautifully illustrated throughout by Nick Maland, who won the Booktrust Early Years Award for Oliver Who Travelled Far and Wide, and was shortlisted for Mother Goose Best Newcomer.
