Summary

Eleven-year-old Tomas has a secret friend like no other: Flicker, a dragon with glittering eyes and scales that flicker from fiery orange to ruby red. But Tomas is also having to get used to Flicker being away, now that his dragon's home is back in the frosty North. Adventure is never far away for Tomas, though - as he finds out when another dragon hatches on the dragonfruit tree at the bottom of the garden, a dragon who quite quickly decides he is sticking firmly with Tomas! Zing is a tiny dragon with oversized wings who causes havoc wherever he goes. 

When a new girl, Aura, starts at school, proclaiming herself to be a dragon expert, Tomas is thrown into confusion. He is the one with the dragons and the dragonfruit tree, after all! Before he knows it, Tomas has blurted out his secret to Aura, setting in motion a chain of events which will lead to adventures and mayhem aplenty.

keeps cutting out

great story - we love this series! but I think the engineer has put a noise cancelling effect across the audio because it ducks out on the odd 'ch' or 't' sound and it's quite distracting.

Wonderful

My 5 and 7 year olds were captivated by all 5 books and I feel it is a book we will come back to many times. As with all of the books in the series I like the way lessons about friendship and and emotions are subtle woven in alongside the excitement of having dragons to look after

Dragon-tastic 🐉

You can tell that Andy Shepherd has put her heart into this book. As well as putting her heart into this book, she has poured out all of her imagination into the pages of this book.
What I also love about this book is that it leaves you with questions like ‘What’s going to happen next? or ‘Why did that happen?
I love all the different types of dragons, especially Crystal and Dogger.

My review is 5 Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
