Dragon's Dinner is published today - hurrah!!
It always takes such a long while... I began work on the drawings in March 2008, and finished the artwork almost exactly one year ago which, believe it or not, makes this one slightly quicker than usual.
The story is another rhyming one, which makes it great fun to read aloud. Poor old dragon spends the whole book chasing a string of animals, trying to catch them for dinner (it's a cumulative thing, where a bear, then a fox, then a cat, then an owl get added to the line). When he finally catches up with a mouse, he thinks at least he should be easy, but not so!
Actually, the story was originally going to be called 'Squeak!' because it's by squeaking in the dragon's ear that the mouse wins the day. Later it was changed to 'Greedy Dragon' and finally to Dragon's Dinner.
