Follow the fearless Georgie as she befriends a hungry dragon and shows others not to judge on first appearances in The Extremely Greedy Dragon. The village of Little Chiddling has a big problem. A sleeping dragon, that cannot be woken, is fast asleep on a railway line! The Mayor offers a reward to anyone that can move the dragon off the tracks.
Georgie Johnson courageously takes up the task and manages to wake the dragon up by rustling a packet of crisps. The crisps are quickly gobbled up and it's not long before the dragon visits a cricket match, a barbecue and even a wedding! Will the dragon get up to trouble or will he be helpful to the village of Little Chiddling? Part of the QED Storytime series, this beautifully illustrated book introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories, and includes supporting notes for parents and teachers. Storytime has recently featured on CBeebies Bedtime Stories.
