The Boy Who Sang With Dragons – Andy Shepherd, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie

Today I am delighted to share with you the fifth and final book in, ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons,’ series. I have been completely captivated and enchanted by this series and, ‘The Boy Who Sang with Dragons,’ is the absolute perfect ending to this wonderful adventure. By now you would expect Tomas to be a fully fledged dragon expert but he is failing to keep the last seeds from the dragon tree alive. If only he could solve the final piece of the puzzle and discover the magical ingredient that will bring the seeds back to life and save the day. Together with his new friend Aura they are determined to uncover the truth but even he after all of his experiences isn’t prepared for what he discovers hidden away for many years as he embarks on the final exciting adventure.

For me this series has gone from strength to strength, every time I feel like Andy can’t possibly create more enchanting stories then along she comes and fills me with absolute wonder. I have a real fondness for Aura whose enthusiasm for dragons and life sparks something new in Tomas encouraging him to find out the key to saving his favourite flying friends. It’s filled with lots of ooh and ahh moments, that will keep children turning the pages. At the heart of these books is a wonderful message about being brave enough to be yourself and to embrace what is unique about you. Once again the characterisation is superb, I particularly love how family orientated these stories are, so many children’s books exclude the grown-ups but here they have a special role to play. Andy deftly mixes humour and heart and sprinkles her stories with magic and excitement which is captured superbly by Sara’s sublime illustrations. All of the elements of each book are drawn together creating a truly unexpected and charming finale which will absolutely delight fans of this series.
