I was intrigued when I saw this on Netgalley not only by the title but it also gave me the vibes of Disney's Pete's Dragon and so I knew I had to get my hands on it.
The relationship between Stick and the Dragon was very comical in parts and feel that paired with the audio book really gives it a va va voom.
There is so much to unpack in this well written Middle Grade. First you have London which Penny has turned into an actual character and you get to have an insight into how it was like living there and then you had the found family who really looked out for each other and each had such individuality even if they were only in some scenes than others. We also had a mystery which needed solving and quickly as to why a man and woman who take a lot of interest in children specially if they are street urchins.
I was not expecting the reveal concerning Stick even though the Dragon had already said that a certain kind of person would be able to communicate with her.
I gave this wonderful book 4 stars and will be on the lookout for more Penny Chrimes books
