Book Recommendation from Dolores

DRAGON WAKING  by Grayson Towler. Albert  Whitman and Co.

“Rose knows all about being an outsider, being bullied and seen as a weirdo. She prefers to live in her own inner world peopled by  friendly dragons.Then, one magical day she finds a real dragon, one with the power to shape shift and her world changes forever.”

This is a really good Christmas buy for children, who still believe in magic, children who know what it is like to have a friend who is ‘ Different’. In many ways it is a ‘traditional’ story written in a traditional way and all the more powerful for that.

Written with a deep understanding of how children cope with their inner world, this is a ‘first’ book by Grayson Towler and it will not be the last. He is an author to watch if you have young children gifted with imagination. There are some authors who have a  talent for writing  childrens books , without talking down to them, as if they themselves have entered that world and know it well. Put it on your Christmas list for nieces, nephews, god-children, or your own if they are in this age group.. it is also for those adults who never really grown up.. like me.
