The Boy Who Grew Dragons by Andy Shepherd, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie Imagine if you could grow dragons ... in your very own garden! A wonderfully funny and sparky series!
 
When Tomas discovers a strange old tree at the bottom of this grandpa's garden, he doesn't think much of it. But he takes the funny fruit fro the tree back into the house - and gets the shock and delight of his life when a tiny dragon hatches! The tree is a dragonfruit tree, and Tomas has got his very own dragon, Flicker...
 
Tomas soon finds out that life with Flicker is great fun, but also very... unpredictable. Yes, dragons are fiery, fantastical and dazzling, but they also set fire to your toothbrush, singe your porridge and leave your pants hanging from the TV aerial. Tomas has to learn how to look after Flicker - and quickly. and then something extraordinary happens - more dragonfruits appear on the tree. Tomas is officially growing dragons...
