Storm Dragon

Book Synopsis

“Watch out, dragons. We’re coming!”

Rain raps the windows. Wind rattles the doors. And off they go, grandchild and grandpa, down to the beach for a wild and wonderful adventure, looking for the Storm Dragon!

Our Review Panel says...

A joyful story that celebrates imagination, outdoor play and intergenerational relationships, all about a grandpa and grandaughter’s playful take on sheltering from a storm in their beach hut. Carol Thompson’s illustrations in Storm Dragon by Diane Hofmeyr, bring as much to this gorgeous book as the words themselves – painting, as they do, an ethereal dance as Grandpa and granddaughter hurtle across the windswept beach.

The simple storyline will capture the imaginations of the youngest readers, with just a shadow of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and ‘Lion Hunt’, in the narrative.

Full of simple phrases and commands, the story will work well to build imaginative play or to herald splattery autumn art sessions! With its dramatic build-up and cosy ending, this book is also likely to become a bedtime favourite.
