Watch Caryl Hart reading When a Dragon Comes to Stay

Today we’re excited to share another wonderful reading from Caryl Hart, author of When a Dragon Comes to Stay, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw – a delightful rhyming picture book all about manners, good and bad!

When a dragon comes to stay, will she behave herself? Why, of course she will. Obviously she knows she must share her toys, eat daintily and skip happily upstairs at bathtime. Well . . . not quite. Like all toddlers, this little dragon finds good manners a tiny bit tricky. It’s lucky she has some friends to help her.

You can watch Caryl Hart reading When a Dragon Comes to Stay at the top of this post!

‘Bright, colourful illustrations bring dragon and her friends to life, perfectly capturing the perils of life as a toddler and show just what good behaviour looks like.’ – The Book Activist (blog)

‘Caryl Hart’s brilliantly clever text has echoes of Hillaire Belloc and A. A. Milne’s classic poem ‘Rice Pudding’, and Ros Beardshaw’s artwork is a delight. Perfect bedtime reading!’ – Editor
