When Lavender gets kidnapped in the Forest of Toothy, Vicious and Flatulent Dragons, the sisters must face a host of deadly enemies. Hairy-faced villains. Ominous turnips. A witch called Boris. And a moat-dragon who is just a little bit peckish for a tasty child-sized snack. Will Eliza and Lavender ever escape? Why is their goat, Gertrude, so depressed? Whose side is Bonnet, the smallest giant in the world really on? And what day is it today? This book will answer some, but not all, of these questions ...Buckle and Squash and the Monstrous Moat-Dragon by Sarah Courtauld is a brilliantly funny debut for fans of How to Train Your Dragon and Mr Gum.

Review quote

Very funny and exciting, this story will enchant young readers, and leave them ready for a quest of their own. Guardian With zany characters, funny illustrations, deadpan dialogue and slapstick humour, this is a top-class adventure story with perfectly-pitched humour that the whole family can enjoy. Lancashire Evening Post Bursts with sparkle and wit ... sends up fairy tales with demented glee. -- Philip Womack Literary Review
