Even dragons can’t resist a good story…

This is the story of Leo who is a knight who would much rather read. When his parents convience him to go and fight a dragon he does so with dread and despair... after all he would rather read. Along the way he encounters creatues that he's read about and using his ingenuity he avoids battles and spreads his love of reading.

 

My smile kept getting bigger and bigger as I read this beautifully written and illustrated tale. This is a great story to read morning, noon or night!

Helen Docherty  was born and grew up in a small town called Weymouth, on the south coast of England. My family was from Wales, and I inherited from them a love of stories. As a child, I spent most of my time  either reading or writing. From an early age I started making books with my own stories and pictures in them. I took this very seriously, and was quite determined that I would be a writer when I grew up (I knew I was never going to make it as a ballet dancer, athlete or pop star).
