`I LOVE it. It is so touching and original and delightful. Katie's illustrations are a perfect match for the text, too' Jacqueline Wilson

Franklin the dragon loves stories and loves reading stories to people too, but everyone is too scared to even look at him. One day he meets a girl named Luna who, far from being scared, is fascinated to meet Franklin, having recently read all about dragons in one of her books. They instantly become friends and talk non-stop about what they've read: books about roller skating, King Arthur, spiders and how to do kung fu. Together, they hatch a plan to share their love of books with others by opening a bookshop - a flying bookshop, that is - right on Franklin's back!
