The Dragon Stoorworm
The Dragon Stoorworm was the very first, very worst dragon that ever lived. It was ginormous: almost as big as the whole of Scotland!
Many warriors set out to battle the terrible dragon, but they did not return, until
Gentle Assipattle is no warrior but maybe together, he and the King of Scotland's daughter, Princess Gemdelovely, can free the country from the wrath of the Dragon Stoorworm.
'A stunning new range of children's books landed on our doorstep just before we disappeared on holiday for two weeks. So we spirited them away with us and have been enthralled by them... We're not here to tell you the ending of this fantastic tale, but to let you discover this wonderful range for yourself. Picture Kelpies combine brilliant traditional tales with utterly stunning artwork (it's amazing to think that this is Matthew Land's first picture book - the man has a bright future ahead of him!)'
'Beautiful books which are a great introduction to the folklore genre... Wonderful stories which will give children a real sense of Scottish culture.'
