Written by Leah Mohammed
Illustrated by Loretta Schauer
When Luma Dewan wakes up on the morning of her seventh birthday, she knows that today will be special. But she has no idea just how wonderful and extraordinary it will be.
For today is the day she will meet Timir – a real talking dragon. Or at least when Luma is around that’s what he is. When anyone else is there, he becomes an ordinary grey puppy with a fluffy tail, who loves chasing squirrels and bouncing on trampolines.
It’s a big secret to keep – and Luma’s clever cousin Arjun is soon suspicious of this peculiar puppy, who doesn’t quite behave like any other dog. Luckily Luma’s grandmother – Nani – is there to help, and to Luma’s surprise, Nani might just know a little dragon magic of her own.

Egmont 2021
Written by Gareth P Jones
Illustrated by Loretta Schauer

A uniquely silly and rebellious twist on a favourite fairy tale – with a fabulously foiled cover!

“Rabunzel, Rabunzel, let down your ears!…”

Rabunzel has a teeny tufty tail, a twitchy nose and two wide brown eyes. She also has VERY long ears – so long that her mother worries they will make her easy bait for the hungry creatures of the forest.

The answer? Rabunzel must be kept safe … in towering hutch, high in the sky.

But one day, it isn’t her mother who climbs up Rabunzel’s very long ears…

A fearless, fun-filled fairy tale – perfect for any little reader who loves a twist in the tale!
