Paperback:Marmaduke the very different dragon:2014 Paperback
Author: Valentine, Rachel
Artist: Eaves, Edward
Year: 2014
Language: English
Interest category: Picture books
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Resource type: Physical
Note: Marmaduke's not like all the other dragons - his ears are too big and he never even tries to fly. He just doesn't fit in, however much he wants to, and so he feels terribly lonely. And Princess Meg? Well, she wears trainers and breaks into dance at the most inappropriate of times, which means that she sticks out like a sore thumb. She doesn't really have any friends, but then she's far too busy having fun to notice. Until one day when Marmaduke and Meg's lives collide in the most exciting, brilliant and surprising way and they both realise just how much they need each other. And, who knows, maybe a princess and a dragon will make the most perfect best friends. Pre-School

Anyone who knows me will know that I adore dragons. I've even written a series of children's picture books starring a dragon of my own. So when I spotted this on the shelf at the local supermarket, I naturally picked it up for a closer look. It was almost Mother's day and my son was with me. He knows me so well, and is thoughtful and kind. "Let me buy it for you." So it is now part of my collection. It is a lovely story with adorable illustrations. I like that dragons protect princesses instead of kidnapping them.
