Eddie has travelled with his uncle Morton to Mongolia, in hope of being one of the few to watch the Great Dragon Battle Ceremony. But wild dragons are not nearly so friendly as pet ones, and the inhospitable mountains are a dangerous place to be stuck with nothing but a pile of chocolate bars. Meanwhile, back at home, Mum can't quite believe her son has really run off to Mongolia, and now she has been left with the tricky task of dragonsitting . . .

Told in emails between Eddie and his mum, The Dragonsitter in the Land of the Dragons is an extra actionpacked tale of misunderstandings, monsters and Mars bars.

If you liked The Boy Who Grew Dragons, then we think you’ll really love this fully illustrated funny chapter books series for readers aged 5+. Eddie is a young boy trusted with an incredibly big task: he must look after his uncle’s pet DRAGON, Ziggy, every time his uncle is off on a holiday. The only problem is Ziggy is a very naughty pet dragon who always seems to get himself (and Eddie) into lots of trouble. This is such a fun series by Josh Lacey, the author of the Hope Jones Save The World books and the Time Travel Twins books.
