From the author of Lenny’s Book of Everything, a deeply affecting, uplifting novel in which a girl finds refuge from her difficult home life while caring for an ailing baby dragon
Pip never wants to be at home nowadays. There’s no laughter anymore and her mum isn’t happy. She spends most of her time alone, daydreaming and digging for treasure by the dirty creek.
But one night, Pip finds something incredible – a dragon. Tiny, possibly dying, but definitely a dragon. She quickly realises that dragons don’t come with instructions: what do you feed a dragon? Where could it have come from? And how can Pip cope with the enormous changes this creature will bring into her life?
Full of enchanting magic and poignant truths, Dragon Skin is a moving story of friendship, family and finding a way to fly.
