Have You Seen My Dragon?

By Steve Light
Illustrated by Steve Light

Enter a fascinating, ornately drawn cityscape and help a boy find his dragon while counting objects from hot dogs to traffic lights.

A search-and-find number book! Enter an ornately drawn cityscape and help a little boy find his dragon while counting objects from hot dogs to traffic lights! As the boy travels all over town searching for his dragon friend, can you spot the glorious beast, as well as an array of big-city landmarks and icons – buses, taxis, manhole covers, books, bicycles and more? Is the dragon taking the bus, or breathing his fiery breath below a busy street? Maybe he took a taxi to the zoo or is playing with the dogs in the park. Steve Light’s masterful pen-and-ink illustrations, decorated with meticulous splashes of colour, elevate this counting book (numbers 1–20) to new heights – with brilliant flashes of humour.

  • Steve Light's amazing skill with pen and ink is beautifully showcased here.
  • Entertainingly incorporates a seek-and-find element (although finding the dragon isn't very difficult!) within a counting book - with both number word and numeral appearing on each spread. Unlike many counting books, this one goes from 1 to 20, making it suitable for slightly older children.
  • The city setting is perfect for countable urban icons, which appear in colour amid the black-and-white illustrations... buses, taxis, manhole covers, books, bicycles and much more.
