Editorial Reviews

Praise for previous books in the series: 'My two eldest children (age ten and eight) have just read this and they both really loved it (my oldest read it in one sitting!). My eight-year-old boy said 'It will probably be my favourite book' so I suspect we might be getting the next one when it comes out. My ten-year-old boy wrote his own review and asked me to post it on Amazon: 'A great read. I enjoyed every bit of it. I liked it a lot because it was about dragons and they can be interesting sometimes, especially when they breath fire. I would recommend this to children around 5-8 years old as it is quite short but full of interesting story.''I like how your stories appeal to both boys and girls, and the illustrations are brilliant.''My favourite book so far is Quest for a Friend, because Desmond is really entertaining and the new baby is cool.''Thank you for coming to our school. I have finished two books and really enjoyed them. I liked it when you said some of your ideas come from your grandchildren.''I just can't wait to see what happens next...'
