We've had ninjas, pirates, superheroes, beasts, magicians. What's next?


My Dad is a Dragon is a glorious picture book celebrating dads everywhere, from award-winning duo Damon Young and Peter Carnavas.

Some dads pull billycarts

painted blue and black.

But my dad is a dragon...

I sit upon his scaly back!

All dads are different. But what if your dad was really different? What if your dad was a dragon?
