The Boy Who Grew Dragons had (shamefully) been on my TBR list for a long time, I initially got it to join in with #PrimarySchoolBookClub but in the end didn’t have the time to join in.

From the start of this wonderful book I was gripped and really wanted to know what happened and was disappointed that it was finished so quickly, Tomas is a bright, imaginative young boy and the other characters are all so full of life with the interactions feeling so real.

As the title suggests Tomas discovers a Dragon Fruit plant, but one with a difference. Dragons!

The addition of the sheer destructiveness of Flicker, especially the nice (squishy) addition to the poo part had me laugh out loud at a couple of points.

I am so looking forward to the books to follow the continuing misadventures of the crew, as the end of the book is something you have to read yourself.
