Midget dreams of buying a boat and sailing away, but people say it'll take a miracle for that to happen. Midget knows miracles can happen, but sometimes they hurt people who get in the way ...Dragon's Rock Benjamin can't stop the nightmares. Every night they come - so real and vivid that Benjamin lives in terror and sleep has become a place of fear.

Junior Bookshelf Crisp dialogue, a fast-moving pace and rounded characters make this one to keep readers hooked from the first page. School Librarian A risky and powerful novel whose images themselves may play around young readers' minds after the book is closed. Times Educational Supplement Dragon's Rock: a nightmarish chiller which blends the flavour of Twin Peaks with Alan Garner Times Educational Supplement This book was a brilliant read Teen Titlesshow more
