Review:

"Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be another twist on the old alphabet book format, someone comes up with a fresh, funny, clever version like this one. A child dragon with as yet no fire to breathe out, goes on a quest for his flame following this A-Z instruction manual. He encounters all sorts of sympathetic and endearing medieval characters and creatures, each dancing across the page with its own humourous vitality. Clusters of objects beginning with each letter of the alphabert, all to do with medieval myths and stories, are hidden in lovely fairytale landscapes." (Times-Colonist 2006-09-28)

"What a wonderful book! ... amazing illustrations and entertaining anecdotes... A great bedtime book, or one for anytime!" (Teensreadtoo 2006-11-02)

"There is plenty here to entertain, intrigue and challenge, all handsomely and colourfully presented and with the most appealing little hero. It is a delightful medieval journey, and alphabet puzzle, and a pleasure." (Deakin Newsletter 2006-10-01)

"Springett's artwork...is rich and vibrant. Children will love its deep colours and quirky details... Highly recommended." (CM Magazine 2006-10-13)

"This alphabet book with a medieval twist is highly recommended." (Canadian Book Review Annual 2008-06-01)
