Description - The Dragons of Kilve by Beth Webb
Here are twelve funny and imaginative stories showing that everyone is special and the importance of caring for one another. When some ancient eggs hatch the dragons of Kilve are in for a few surprises and their peaceful lives are turned upside-down. The sometimes wayward dragons have all sorts of adventures and mishaps, but the wise old Dragon Master is always at hand to comfort, cheer and encourage them. Young readers will recognise that many of the dragons are not so different from themselves and their friends. Sales of first edition approach 7,000 copies. This new edition has been re-edited and made more accessible to the target readership. 'She opens a door on the heights and depths that Fantasy can offer, but with such a light touch and such a witty knowing edge...that it never seems solemn or old-fashioned, refreshing the time-honoured images, rather than debunking them. The feelings are real and modern, and the archetypes are still alive!' - Philip Gross, Author and lecturer
