Description

The world is populated by some beastly dragons who care nothing for how much they pollute the oceans, chop down the trees, gobble up all the food and use everything up without stopping to think. Those dragons need to wake up to what they are doing to their world before it is too late ...An energy-filled picture book that addresses concerns about the environment in the most child-centric and delightful way possible.show more

It ends with the reassuring hope that we can change and make our world better' National Geographic 'Tackles global warming for pre-schoolers: no easy task but beautifully done as an allegory of wasteful dragons who heat the world by breathing fire' Sunday Express magazineshow more
