In the book Prince Ronald is captured by a fire-breathing dragon. Elizabeth, a very clever princess sets off to save him but things don't work out quite as expected. Would you like to read it?
Let's look at the cover of the book first. A little girl is standing at the entrance to a huge cave. She looks very messy and dirty and she is dressed in a paper bag.
Inside the cave we can see the head of an enormous fierce dragon. I'm glad dragons are only pretend creatures because it really is quite scary looking.
Now open the cover of the book to find our first feely picture which is of the dragon and Princess Elizabeth.
Feel all over the picture. It shows how much bigger the huge dragon is beside the tiny princess.
