Paperback / Softback




Each night before bed, Georgie thinks about what she’ll grow the next day. One morning she finds she’s grown a dragon! This dragon isn’t like her other plants: it doesn’t like the sun, the soil, being watered, and it’s much much, more troublesome…

The brilliant third book from a rising star of the picture book world, tipped as ‘one to watch’ by The Bookseller magazine.

Georgie is a keen gardener. She can grow anything. Until one morning she discovers that… overnight… it seems that she’s grown a dragon! He’s bigger, grumpier, hungrier and more troublesome than any of her other plants. Can she learn to keep him happy and find out where he came from?

A colourful and surreal romp, packed with funny details, that animal lovers and little gardeners will adore.
