The Dragons of Wayward Crescent: Gruffen

Some houses have unexplained noises. Some even have ghosts. But the Pennykettle household has real live dragons! How cool is that? Elizabeth Pennykettle loves to make miniature dragons out of clay. But somehow the pottery dragons that she makes won’t stay quiet on the shelves… And in that otherwise normal house in Wayward Crescent, a strange and magnificent power is stirring. Come and meet the dragons there!

The first book in a fantastic new series introducing the dragons of the Pennykettle household, from acclaimed author and dragon fan Chris D’Lacey!
