‘Irresistible … a modern classic’ GUARDIAN
‘A warm-hearted debut … lovely, expressive, characterful’ SUNDAY TIMES
When Tomas discovers a strange old tree at the bottom of his grandad’s garden, he doesn’t think much of it.
But he takes the funny fruit from the tree back into the house – and gets the shock and delight of his life when a tiny dragon hatches! The tree is a dragonfruit tree, and Tomas has got his very own dragon, Flicker … Tomas soon finds out that life with Flicker is great fun, but also very … unpredictable.
Yes, dragons are wonderful, but they also set fire to your toothbruth and leave your pants hanging from the TV aerial. Tomas has to learn how to look after Flicker – and quickly. And then something extraordinary happens – more dragonfruits appear on the tree.
Tomas is officially growing dragons … The first book in a sparky and utterly enchanting new series.
