Life is dull for a dragon.

For a dragon, time drags on.

Frighten kid, eat princess,

Breathe fire, cause distress.

Day after deadly day, the same.

Eat, scare, sleep, flame.

How to be Batman, the Year Six Disco, the school bully, being alone, best mates, being a dragon or vanishing - FWOOF! Funny, clever and thought-provoking,these poems are brilliant for reading at school or at home.

With witty illustrations by the author, this is an exciting and distinctive debut poetry collection.
