This is an enchanting tale by Pippa Goodhart, perfect for children learning to read. Granda is different from other folk – he talks to the hills. One day, he tells his granddaughter, Lily, an old story about Dragon Boy – a human child who was raised by a dragon mother. The young lad lived happily with his family in the Dragon Hills. He looked like a dragon in his costume of leaves, and he learnt to sing dragon songs. But he couldn’t make fire like his dragon friends and somehow, he still felt as if he was the odd one out. Then one day, Dragon Boy is reunited with his real mother and goes to live with his human family, but he still misses his dragon past and he still talks to them when he can. Just like Granda in fact, thinks Lily! The Reading Ladder series helps children to enjoy learning to read.
