A hide-and-seek picture book from New York Times award-winning author Leo Timmers, about three silly knights and a clever dragon in disguise.

The king can't sleep for fear of the dragon, so he sends his three knights outside to find it. With only one candle between them, they go out into the dark. Is that a dragon? Attack But every suspicious shape turns out to be something else, until the knights confidently turn for home, not noticing what's behind them.

This cleverly illustrated game-inside-a-book will have young children shouting out loud in delight as they spot the dragon hidden on every page.

With intricately detailed illustrations and joyful rhyming text, this picture book is a fun read-aloud for toddlers and pre-schoolers aged 2 years and up.

Where Is the Dragon? is an absurdly fun take on mistaken dragon identity, from the master storyteller and author of Monkey on the Run, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book. Leo Timmers is one of Belgium's pre-eminent picture book artists. Translated from the Dutch edition by poet James Brown.

Picture Book Winner, Teach Early Years Awards 2021.
