Snort and Wobbles
By Will Macmillan Jones
Dragons are not real. Everyone tells you that. So what do you do when you are eight years old, and meet a dragon living at the bottom of your garden? You have the adventure of your life!
When Wobbles and her family move into their new home, she is delighted to find that a green dragon is living in secret at the bottom of the garden. But Snort the dragon is not the only one: underground a gang of Goblins have also made their home, and when they capture Wobbles' big brother Jeremy, it is up to her and Snort to save him: before the Goblins roast him on their barbecue.
Written for those children who are just becoming confident in reading for themselves, and for those parents who (like the author) are addicted to reading bedtime stories to their children and grandchildren, Snort and Wobbles is a thrilling, captivating adventure for 6 - 10 year olds.

My Review: Wobbles (Lisa) is a girl who loves dragons, so when she discovers Snort living in her very own backyard, she's over the moon with excitement. But finding her very own dragon isn't the only adventure in store for Wobbles. When her brother goes missing, it's up to Wobbles, Snort, a talking rose bush, and a renegade snake to rescue him.
Snort and Wobbles is an enchanting story young readers will adore. Readers age 7 and up might be able to tackle this book on their own, however the subject matter is appropriate for younger children. The book is broken into six easy chapters for six nights of read-aloud adventures parents and children can enjoy together. My children are far too old for me to read aloud to them, but I became caught up in the story. It's a fantasy adventure for dragon lovers of all ages. It's fast-paced, fun, and humorous--the perfect combination! The author's imagination is enhanced by the intricate illustrations at the beginning of each chapter. I highly recommend this book to parents, grandparents, teachers, and anyone who wants to give the gift of reading to a child they love.
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
