The Dragonsitter Takes Off

By Josh Lacey
Illustrated by Garry Parsons

The hilarious follow-up to the Roald Dahl Funny Prize shortlisted, The Dragonsitter . From the best-selling author of GRK.

Dear Uncle Morton, Ziggy won’t move from the linen cupboard. He still hasn’t eaten a thing. Not even a Malteser. I’m really quite worried about him. Eddie had thought that this time dragonsitting would be easy – until Ziggy disappears, only to be found in the linen cupboard, refusing to budge. But moving Ziggy is the last thing on Eddie’s mind when he learns that his uncle’s dragon has been keeping a big secret . . .
