When I wrote that last post, I realised there were some more things I really like about this book. (Yes, I know I’m biased!)
One thing is the map at the start. You can have a look at it here. All the books I read as a kid had maps to show you where things happen. I especially like being able to visit the place to check it out myself.
The other thing is the dragon dictionary. This is at the back of the book. It looks like this:
(The camera flash has made the words show through from the next page – sorry about that!)
But we like words, and it was fun to make up phrases using the words the dragons would use if you translated them into English.
With a map and a dictionary, you are set to enjoy the plot.
