Description of this Book

Tomas can't imagine life without his little dragon Flicker. He's become more than a pet - he's a friend like no other. And growing dragons on the dragonfruit tree in the garden with his friends Ted, Kat and Kai is the most amazing thing ever. But Tomas has promised Grandad something - that he and his friends will let their dragons go back to where they belong. The only problem is - that isn't such an easy thing to do. Not when they are still having so much fun with dragons Flicker, Sunny, Crystal and Dodger. Not when they still have to work out where the dragons' home is, and how to get the dragons to leave. And not when Tomas is so close to uncovering the true story of the mysterious dragonfruit tree ...

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Shepherd's storytelling is aimed at young but bright readers, full of enthusiasm and momentum, it is ideal for reading aloud to eager ears, though possibly not at bedtime if you have any wish of getting them settled with lights out at a reasonable time, the swift plot unfolding with the involvement of nosey neighbours, secret maps and diaries with clues to the origin of the dragons and nocturnal excursions on Hallowe'en and Bonfire Night * Geek Chocolate *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
