The Boy Who Grew Dragons – Andy Shepherd & Sara Ogilvie Book Trailer

It’s been a year since I revealed the cover of Andy Shepherd’s debut, ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons,’ illustrated by Sara Ogilvie and in a few short weeks you’ll be able to get your hands on a copy of this magical and wonderful book. In anticipation of the release I am thrilled to exclusively reveal for you today the trailer of the book which brings  the magic of Andy’s words and Sarah’s magnificent illustrations to life in a truly special way.

So without further here it is…….


Imagine if you could grow dragons in your very own garden……

When Tomas discovers a strange old tree at the bottom of his grandpa’s house, he doesn’t think much of it. But he takes the funny fruit from the tree back into the house – and gets the shock and delight of his life when a tiny dragon hatches! The tree is a dragonfruit tree, and Tomas has got his very own dragon, Flicker…

Tomas soon finds out that life with Flicker is great fun, but also very…..unpredictable. Yes, dragons are fiery, fantastical and dazzling, but they also set fire to your toothbrush, singe your porridge and leave your pants hanging from the TV aerial. Tomas has to learn to look after Flicker-and quickly. And then something extraordinary happens – more dragonfruits appear on the tree. Tomas is officially growing dragons…..

Thank you to Andy and Piccadily for inviting me to host the book trailer reveal. ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons,’ is released on the 14th June and is available to pre-order now online or from any good bookshop.
