Herb the Vegetarian Dragon is a wonderful story book. The dragons in the forest of Nogard like nothing better than raiding Castle Dark and carrying off princesses to eat - all except one. Herb is at his happiest tending his vegetable patch, for Herb is a vegetarian. So it is unfortunate that he is captured by the castle's knights in armour. Treacherous Meathook and his dragon cronies will only help Herb if he agrees to eat meat - will he give in to their blackmail?
Jules Bass's lighthearted story combines with Debbie Harter's jaunty illustrations to make this a hilarious picture book that also offers young readers plenty of food for thought.
This book will make for hours of fun. Includes extra earth-friendly activities!
