The Boy Who Grew Dragons

Utterly heartwarming, funny and charming. From Tomas’s magic seeds, mighty dragons grow! When Tomas finds a strange old tree at the bottom of his grandad’s garden, he takes its funny-looking fruit back into the house. And soon he gets the shock of his life when a tiny dragon hatches! Life with Flicker is great fun, but also rather startling. Yes, dragons are delightful, but they also set fire to your toothbruth and leave your pants hanging from the TV aerial. But just as Tomas starts to get the hang of looking after Flicker, more fruits appear on the tree. Tomas is officially growing dragons…
