Doughnuts for a Dragon - by Adam & Charlotte Guillain, illustrated by Lee Wildish - reviewed by Damian Harvey

George, the brave young explorer from 'Marshmallows for Martians' and 'Spaghetti with the Yeti' makes a welcome return in Adam and Charlotte Guillain's latest picture book - 'Doughnuts for a Dragon'.
To prove that he is fearless and bold, George sets out on a time travelling adventure and goes in search of a dragon. After building himself a time machine, young George packs a bag...

"With some snacks that a hero might eat.
There were cakes, pies and buns, and a bottle of fizz,
And doughnuts - the ultimate treat."
Adam and Charlotte's delightful rhyming is full of fun and it takes us along on George's adventure as he comes across a Princess, an Ogre, a Witch and more - passing each one with help from his bag of tasty treats. To find out what happens when he finally confronts the fearsome dragon you will have to read on for yourself.
Lee Wildish's excellent, artwork is full of character, detail and motion, and he really brings the story to life. Readers will have lots to look at and discover as they revisit this book again and again. Sure to be a big favourite on anyone's bookshelf.
