Jousting With Jesters

An ABC for the Younger Dragon

illustrated by Martin Springett

tagged: alphabet, fantasy & magic, parents

When Dennis the dragon emerges from his egg, he cannot yet breathe fire. This is not unusual in the dragon world, but the quest Dennis undertakes to find his flame most certainly is. An alphabetical series of instructions guides the young dragon as he journeys from castle to countryside, from fairground to forest until he arrives at the blazing crater of a volcano. He meets villains, imps, gnomes and knights along the way — as well as a mischievous jester who stays close to his side from A to Z.
