Author Paula BroderTheir journey takes them deep into a fantasy world and as the quest continues, they meet some wonderful characters - nippies, unicorns, rainbow mice, a rather plump Christmas tree fairy - and the last living dodo. Some of these join them on their mission, and Toby soon learns that there is more than one kind of dragon - and not all of them are friendly. Author Paula Broderick is inspired by children's authors, most noticeably J.M. Barrie, Hugh Lofting and C.S. Lewis. She has used her experience and understanding of animals, gained partly from owning a game conservation reserve in Africa, combined with her knowledge of African folklore stories and her own stories to create a charming story that will appeal to children from 7 years old. The book is beautifully illustrated by Dave Leonard."...

    This is a lovely book to either read aloud to little ones, or for older children (or adults!) to enjoy. It is imaginative and well written with lots of adventures without being too scary. I cannot recommend it too highly.

    Goodreads win!Rating 2-2.5 starsKudos to the author for seeing her story into fruition! This is a cute tale of a young boy that discovers beneath his bed a talking dragon and a magical tunnel that leads into a fantasy world. At times, the story seemed slow to move from scene to scene; I felt the story was being told to me rather "showing me". Those critiques combined made for a boring read aloud to my kids. (The bit about the magic wand in the unicorn's rear, very ungainly indeed.)

    I enjoyed this book overall; it was a fun, cute adventure that made me smile as I read it. It was a simple story that told of friendship and perseverance, but not in a way that was too daunting for the young reader. The only thing that got me was that there were a lot of punctuation errors in the actual print. Otherwise, I look forward to the second story!

    My wife brought this for my daughter from a signing at our local Waterstones. She'd seen me suffer through my 1st/only signing there and took pity on Paula Broderick who looked similarly lonely!
