In a nutshell: one of our dragons is missing! More hi-jinks with Uncle Morton and his dragons
As fans of this excellent series will know, young Edward Smith-Pickle is often called in to dragon-sit for his Uncle Morton’s two dragons. This time he’s in left charge while Uncle Morton hunts a Kraken but something terrible happens: Ziggy and her son Arthur are dragon-napped! As ever, the action is described by Edward in typically pithy but action-packed emails to his uncle, and his uncle’s occasional laid-back replies. The format makes the stories particularly immediate, not a word is wasted in the telling but the reader has more than enough information to fill in the gaps in Edward’s narrative. Hugely enjoyable, these sophisticated little stories are accessible to all. ~ Andrea Reece
