"How to light your Dragon" by Didier Levy and Fred Benaglia (Thames and Hudson)

We absolutely love dragons - they're probably our favourite mythical creature.

But owning one isn't quite as straightforward as it seems. What do you do if your dragon has lost his spark?

Find out in the rip-roaringly hilarious "How to Light your Dragon" by Didier Levy and Fred Benaglia.

Meet a little boy with a rather unique problem pet. The boy's dragon is no longer able to breathe fire. 

What to do? 

How on earth do you rekindle a despondent dragon’s flame? 

The little boy tries shaking him by his tail, and jumping on his belly, and tickling his legs (which we really wouldn't advise trying!)

How about playing on his feelings, making him sneeze? Making him angry? The boy tries all sorts of tricks but perhaps the most obvious method has been staring him in the face all along!

Sum this book up in a sentence: Perfect for dragon lovers everywhere, this amusing tale will delight and tickle your own little dragons (though we can't guarantee they'll be able to help you boil your kettle afterwards!)

"How to Light your Dragon" by Didier Levy and Fred Benaglia is out now, published by Thames and Hudson (kindly supplied for review).
