"There is no dragon scarier, no, not in any place.
His face looks like his bottom and his bottom like his face!"
Rick loves poetry. He thinks it's exciting, funny and imaginative. But all across the land poets are being silenced - by a dragon! How can Rick avoid being eaten and help save the village from this fiery fiend?
Dommy B's adventure for children over 5 is adapted from his high energy, poetry theatre show and includes puzzles and over 40 b&w illustrations.
