Saffi is a dragon with a difference. She doesn’t want to take part in the usual pursuits associated with dragons. She would like to find a sunny woodland home where she can make friends. Sadly she is a dragon. Will this mean disappointment? Or, maybe, being a dragon has its uses
This attractive little story would be great fun to share with a class or at bedtime. While there may not be many surprises – it is a familiar theme – Jonny Lambert’s illustrations provide the perfect accompaniment. A pleasing pastel palette brings the images to life as they stand out from the white background. Here there is no clutter or extraneous decoration to confuse a young audience. The sans serif font is clear and well placed on the page making it instantly accessible to a wide range of readers, young and old. With its central message of overcoming prejudice, of looking beyond the obvious this is a lively, enjoyable addition to the book corner.
