There's a Dragon Downstairs

Amanda Harvey, Hilary Mckay

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Picture books

Best-selling author Hilary McKay explores in a highly imaginative way, the fears and anxieties which small children can feel when the house is dark and full of shadows.

There's a dragon downstairs at Sophie's house. She knows he is there. She can hear him rattling and snuffling - slinking through the rooms. She is scared, and hides beneath the bedclothes. But when he comes again, Sophie grows bolder... she picks up her sword and shield. She will go downstairs and fight that dragon.

This is a book about childhood imaginings. Sophie grows braver through the story and the dragon of course is no longer there.
