Check out this compilation of reviews (below) from children, parents, guardians, teachers, librarians and celebs. And this list IS shocking. Shockingly long and lovely.

  • Hello to you both! Thank you first for your sensational book! We currently have a few copies of the Dragon of Doooom in class for the children to read, now that they've all read the first one, and they are currently reading it in groups of 4 at a time, that's how desperate they are to read it! 😂 It truly has just inspired the children even more with their reading and writing and that is a joy to see. Miss Stone, Year 4 Teacher
