(Hardback) - 07/10/2021
Two kingdoms, two dragons - which side will win, or will peace prevail?
The kingdoms of Arbor with its lush forests, and Pomosa rich with farmland, have no love between them, and the children have taken to sneaking across the borders to thieve. If only they would share their produce. But the Kings decide to fight, instead... with dragons. But what kind of future will that bring?
Written by multi-award-winning author Geraldine McCaughrean and with illustrations by renowned artist Peter Malone, this picture book with a classic feel is a perfect reflection of contemporary strife and conflict around the world.
