Product Description

A funny favourite by the author of Aliens Love Underpants. Think goldfish are too quiet, kittens are too fluffy and puppies are too bouncy? Perhaps you need a dragon for a pet! George has a new lizard, Sparky. But he’s no ordinary lizard. He’s growing HUGE, and he keeps setting things on fire. George’s exhausted parents are at their wits’ end. They’re even thinking of giving Sparky away. Can George show his mum and dad that dragons can be perfect pets – as well as wonderful best friends? A funny and uplifting tale to warm the cockles of your heart, and get you daydreaming of strange pets to adopt!

  • Written by the author of Aliens Love Underpants
  • The heartwarming story of a very special friendship
  • Warm and witty pictures by top artist Russell Julian
  • A family favourite for any child who dreams of a pet

Claire Freedman is the successful author of over 50 picture books, including the Aliens in Underpants books, George’s Dragon and Tappity Tap! What Was That? She is best known for Aliens Love Underpants, which has gone on to become a huge best seller and was the winner of the Richard and Judy Children’s Book Club in 2007.

Claire left school at sixteen and was the worst secretary ever, a trainee buyer at Harrods and a dental nurse before becoming a full-time writer. Claire says “For me, writing is the best job ever. I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else. I love to create worlds for young children to enjoy and escape into.” She lives on the Essex coast with her husband and loves walking along the sea path, eating in her favourite beach-side café and catching up with friends.
