All good dragons know that water is NOT your friend. It puts out fire, and what is a dragon without fire? It takes a brave and unusual little dragon to find the answer!
Everybody knows that dragons can breathe fire, but unlike her brothers and sisters, this little dragon is different. She doesn't like fire but she desperately wants to fly and make her Dad proud. In an attempt at flying, she finds herself plunging into the lake. Being underwater should be wet, cold and horrid, but it feels AMAZING. Could it be that this little dragon isn't a dragon at all?
From the award-winning Gemma Merino, author of the iconic The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water (over half a million copies sold worldwide), The Dragon Who Didn't Like Fire is a deeply funny story about acceptance, difference, and unconditional love.
