From the inimitable duo of Russell Hoban and Quentin Blake comes a story about a little boy, a fire-breathing dragon, and their sky-high adventure!
“I can make fire come out of my nose and mouth,” the dragon under the pavement tells John. “I can fly. I can spin gold into straw if you have any gold.” John doesn’t have any gold – and he doesn’t need any straw. (Not yet, anyway.) The dragon tells John that if he fights the dragon and wins, the dragon will take him flying. What a challenge! Where will it lead? John soon finds out – and he also finds out that you just never know when a bundle of straw might come in handy… With sword-flashing excitement, a moon landing and plenty of magic, this irresistible page-turner is brought back into print in a bigger format – and a beautiful, more colourful, new edition.
