Books Go Walkabout is about to start another year in China and Hong Kong schools and dragon books just sprang to mind.

Dragons make good books. They can be fiery, angry and vicious, marauding creatures usually in the Western World and stories about myths and legends. They can be kind and helpful creatures as in the Far East where they roamed freely for many years. Even today huge skyscrapers built in China and Hong Kong, have spaces for dragons to fly through as it is unlucky to block dragons and good fortune comes to those who help dragons.
Whichever way, dragons are fantastic characters and some incredible stories have been built around them. Children love stories about dragons. Writing about dragons can come alive on the page and inspire some amazing creative writing. Our list is of just a few books and wanted to ensure that books recommended are sure to please.
Take a dragon in today. You'll be pleased you did. Buy with confidence from Books go Walkabout.
