John Davies' wonderfully-written verses follow Darren, a young Welsh dragon, who worries that his wings are not big or strong enough. After all, who’d heard of a dragon that couldn’t fly?

Darren embarks on a bold quest to find someone to help him, asking Idris the giant, the bard Taliesin and finally Merlin, and ultimately succeeds.

Darren perseveres in his quest to fly, and this excellent story teaches resilience and kindness. With fantastic illustrations by Callum Graham, Darren the Dragon is the perfect story book to share.
