My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Indigo’s Dragon is a fantasy book for readers from around the age of 9 years old and upwards. It is set in the Lake District of England and the Polish mountains. Indigo is 13 years old. He gets an unusual parcel from his Grandfather Opi. It contains a book with tales of mystical beasts and a medicine chest, but it is soon stolen by a strange creature.
When a large bat drops the gift of an egg for Indigo he discovers it is a cockatrice with a deadly death stare. In the hills Indigo’s Mum is helping a Dragon called Graphite which is waking after a 20 year sleep. When they get news of his Grandfather’s disappearance Indigo must travel to Poland to help his Grandmother. High in the mountains Indigo finds many creatures living in a sanctuary created by Opi, but with his disappearance trouble is brewing.
This is the first book in a planned series and would suit readers who like Unicorns, dragons and mystical beasts.
