Real books for beginners
Once upon a time a boy called Ben met a stray dragon called Rascal, and a series of books was born. In Ben and Rascal's world, dragons are perfectly normal, and behave a lot like dogs do in our world, although dragons do fly, and Rascal's way of flying is unique, even for a dragon (see in particular Rascal Takes Off and Rascal and the Hot Air Balloon).
In this fourteenth book of the series, Rascal runs away not once, but twice, in a heartwarming adventure with a lovely, big surprise ending.
Read a Rascal story to your children and before long they'll read it to you.
