How to Save a Dragon
  • How to Save a Dragon

  • Oscar can't believe his ears when Ferris Fleet tells him that dragons aren't just fairy-tales, but it's true: dragons are really real, and hundreds once called World Nine home.

    But that was before the Dragon-Chasers came; before they hunted down almost every dragon alive to steal their eggs and their gleaming rainbow skin. Now Fleet and his friends are doing everything they can to protect what few remain.

    Oscar wants to help - and he may just get his chance. Because a stranger's arrived in Lonelyheart - a man who gives Oscar the creeps. A man they say is a hunter and a poacher, a man who wears a coat of gleaming rainbows . . .

Annie Dalton grew up as an only child in the English countryside during the 1950s. Her father would tell her fantastic stories, often with her as the principal character. This led her to the fantasy section at her local library, thus sparking a lifelong love of fiction. Dalton went on to study at the University of Warwick and soon started writing. Dalton now lives in Norfolk. She has three children, Anna, Reuben and Maria, and two grandchildren, Sophie and Isabelle.
