THE EGG

Description Description
This beautifully illustrated and heartwarming tale tells the story of the surprising friendship between a young boy and the dragon who drops into his life quite by surprise!

George knows something isn't right when he finds more than he bargained for under his mother's favourite chicken....but when the egg hatches he finds himself looking after a baby dragon!

George takes his job as a parent seriously, teaching the hatchling all sorts of 'dragony' ways. From the fine art of flying to breathing fire, from how to distress a damsel to how to defeat a knight, George makes sure to teach the young dragon everything it will need to thrive.

However, as time goes on the dragon begins to pine for his own kind, and one day he disappears, leaving George heartbroken...

Where has the dragon disappeared to? Will the boy and his dragon ever be reunited? This tale will be loved by children and adults alike, who will treasure the wonderful hand-painted illustrations just as much as the moving story in this touching tale of fantasy, family and kinship.
