Watch out dragons... Here be Aaron!

Aaron Gray and the Dragon War Is now available as a book and ebook.

Aaron is a brat, which is understandable after everything he's been through. He also sees dragons when he hums, which isn't understandable by anyone, ever. He soon gets sucked into the dragons' dangerous war, where his only defences are his embarrassingly magical fingernails, and a fierce, ten-year-old girl.

Available everywhere across the world! Check out goodreads / amazon uk / amazon us / barnes & noble / book depository or your favourite book or ebook retailer.

Dragons in Bath

The Victoria Art Gallery in Bath appears to have gone a bit dragon mad this summer, and it lasts until October!



The Art:

The Gallery says:
"The worlds of literature, film and art, both past and present, demonstrate the enduring popularity of the dragon as magical creature, fearsome fire-breather, insomniac guardian of treasures, and scaly flying serpent. A creature to be loved and loathed, perhaps, but never cuddled, stroked or offended! 
Our family oriented summer show sets out to mine this rich seam of dragon lore through images created by some of the world's best children’s illustrators and writers, from Chris Riddell (Ottoline and Goth Girl) and Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo) to Quentin Blake and Cressida Cowell (How to Train Your Dragon)."
It looks really good, and there are some photos of the kind of art in the exhibition below, but it's not all about the art, it's also about the adventure!

The Adventure:


Around Bath City Centre there are eight hidden dragon eggs, which you find using a special app, which contains a compass, pointing to the right egg. Find the eggs (each in the style of a different children's illustrators) and collect the dragons in your app.

And there are even fabulous prizes!

There is a gold letter on each egg. If you put these letters in the right order then they spell out a word. Figure out the word and you get a bookmark, but also go into the prize draw to win a goody bag with signed books, toys, games, tickets and other goodies!

I'm definitely planning a visit before it closes, do let me know if you pop over to Bath! More information is available at http://bit.ly/2iyM5U0
