The Dragon's Dentist from Orion Books Early Readers

The Dragon's Dentist is an Early Reader from Orion Books. It's in the Blue Band, so it's designed for reading together with your child with lots of repetition and short sentences. Written by John McLay, it's illustrated by Martin Brown, who also illustrates Horrible Histories books.


This is a proper book with chapters and 76 full colour pages. The illustrations are great with plenty of facial expression.


It tells the story of Harry, who is the smallest in his family and the only one who isn't a knight. He wants to be a knight and prove himself, so he sets off with his horse 'Oats' to slay a dragon.


The story really appeals to youngsters because they feel they can relate to the characters. It's a great little tale and my boys really enjoyed it. My 5 year old really did 'read it with me'. He also read it in bed to himself  for a while and the next day when we read at bedtime he proudly told me all the words he'd been able to work out for himself.


The Dragon's Dentist is published by Orion Books
and has a recommended retail price of £4.99.


We were sent our copy of the book to review.

    1. He was 'sounding out' the word 'much'. He's very proud he can read some words now and so keen to get reading - it's lovely :)
