An enchanting tale by Pippa Goodhart, perfect for children learning to read.

Granda is different from other folk - he talks to the hills. One day, he tells his granddaughter, Lily, an old story about Dragon Boy - a human child who was raised by a dragon mother.

The young lad lived happily with his family in the Dragon Hills. He looked like a dragon in his costume of leaves, and he learnt to sing dragon songs. But he couldn't make fire like his dragon friends and somehow, he still felt as if he was the odd one out.

Then one day, Dragon Boy is reunited with his real mother and goes to live with his human family, but he still misses his dragon past and he still talks to them when he can. Just like Granda in fact, thinks Lily!

    This is probably the 6th copy of this book that I've purchased. My 3 children absolutely loved this book. It is a perfect book to encourage discussion (favourite foods, places we'd like to visit, which family members looks that person) and lots of giggles and merriment. I have since bought many copies for presents. It is definitely in my Top Ten of favourite children books. I love it.

    we love you choose! it opens up great conversations with kids as you go through the book. every page has a new theme with lots of pictures to talk about. i love listening to the little ones explain why they would or wouldn't pick something and then go off on an story adventure after they've made their choice. great for listening skills, turn taking and wild imaginations.

    I've used this at school for encouraging discussion between the children. There are questions at the top of each page with lots of options for the answers in visual form. The children in my reception class love it!

    Love this book and this is our second copy to give as a gift. Both my 1 year old and 3 year old find it engaging and it can be interpreted/told/discussed in different ways each time. A very well thought out and appealing book.
