Hear from the award winning author Lemn Sissay and illustrator Greg Hobbs as they introduce Lemn’s first picture book.  

This is the story from of a little boy called Alem who goes on an adventure.  

It's his birthday, but who knows where he can go to celebrate it? 

Maybe the bear, the fox, the treefrog or the bulldog know?  

But don't ask the dragon . . . or he will EAT you! 

"A stunning new rhyming folk tale for our time” Michael Rosen 

"Lemn's dragon is one we all need to meet, want to meet. A dragon with kind teeth, a friend-dragon. A Lemn-dragon! We have grandchildren who will love it. Grandpa loved it too." Michael Morpurgo
