Where is the Dragon?

Author(s): Leo Timmers

General Picture Books

A picture book from award-winning Leo Timmers about three silly knights and a clever dragon!

The king can't sleep until the dragon is found. Luckily, the three knights know everything about dragons and are armed to the teeth! Now they just have to find him. They set out into the night with a candle in hand. Soon they find something that looks very much like a dragon … Attack!

The funny rhyming text is by James Brown, an award-winning poet and translator of Gus's Garage.

Jem's Review:

The king is troubled by a nightmare dragon and sends three knights into the night to find it! But in the deep shadows, not everything is what it seems. Knight One and Knight Two retell all the signs the king told them to look out for when hunting dragons. From spikes, to stabbing tails and flared nostrils, Knight Three isn’t scared, and reveals each scary shadow to be a collection of carrots or roosting birds. The dragon must be all in the king’s head...right?

With his trademark art style, Leo Timmers brings all his charm to this rhyming tale of hapless knights and spooky shadows.

A fabulous new picture book from our friends at Gecko Press who have a great article from the translator, James Brown, on translating the rhyming text of Where is the Dragon? here.
