The Dragons 1: Camelot




What do you get when you cross the legendary heroes of Camelot with the legendary humour of Colin Thompson? The Dragons!

What do you get when you cross the legendary heroes of Camelot with the legendary humour of Colin Thompson? The Dragons!

In the days when dragons roamed the earth turning people into toast, a mighty King ruled the world. This King lived in the great castle of Camelot in the beautiful island of Avalon. Guided by the great wizard Merlin, this King became a legend and his name was Arthur.

The trouble with legends is that every time their stories are told they become more and more fabulous, so useless twits are often turned into superheroes.This is the true story of King Arthur, who was not a superhero. He was a nasty little spoilt brat who was totally up himself.

Or was he . . .?

Praise for The Dragons 1: Camelot

“A warm hearted funny look at the Arthurian legends.”

Fran Knight, Magpies

“Wow! This book was so well written and illustrated I am reading it for a second time! The whole thing with dragons and Kings was simply hilarious! I am just itching to read the second book and I will probably read it more than once as well! I really do bow and take my hat off for Colin Thompson!”

Heidi Bigg (student), www.readplus.com.au

“This book is full of stinky people, idiots and dragons. It’s always fun to read about idiots, especially when they are spoilt kings in purple tights.”
