A Dragon Story
By (author) Madeline Pinkerton
Turmeric the Dragon loved stories, especially stories about dragons. The trouble was his parents didn’t like telling them much. “Stories always ends badly for us Dragons,” said his father. But Turmeric didn’t believe him, so he set off to find out for himself.Down in the village Pip loved to tell stories. Her absolute favourite ones were about dragons. The problem was they always got her into trouble. After an unexpected meeting Turmeric and Pip find themselves in their very own dragon story.Madeline Pinkerton was discovered working behind the scenes in the Edinburgh International Book Festival bookshop. Her warm, classical-looking illustrations perfectly combine with a wonderful story about bravery, following your own path, and friendship. Madeline is the fourth Little Door Debut to be published by Little Door Books.
