And my review - this is a lovely little story with the simple reminder that the grass is not always greener on the other side! It will appeal to smaller children as you can see by the length, probably three to six year-olds, and the illustrations are sweet.
My review: Actually, never mind the dragon, this is a little boy who beats his unpleasant older brothers at their own game. It's a very good lesson in not taking things at face value! The illustrations are amusing but the plot is the strong suit here.

The allotments are bunny-infested again - we think there might be a warren under the plots - and we're clubbing together to buy a humane trap and establish a rota for checking it. It's been very dry but today it has rained solidly since this morning, not great for shopping (though I sneaked in a visit to my favourite wool shop) but good for the crops - and indeed for discovering just where the leak was in my mother's roof, as the wet rot man found.
And in work terms - well, I'm writing a new Hippolyta short story, and in the midst of plans for a new website / blog - I'll keep you posted! And I have to finish editing an old stand alone for later this year, once I get the science side sorted out ...

But yes, this Friday evening at 6.30 if you're near St. Andrews pop into Waterstone's on Market Street - we'd love to see you!
I enjoyed last Sunday in Blackwell's very much, and everyone was so kind and I was delighted to meet some lovely chatty readers. Now I'm convinced this one is going to be a disaster because, well, my mind works that way and I'm sure I can't have two good events in one week!
