Green Smoke is a book that I first read as a young girl. It’s a story about a girl called Susan who goes on holiday to Cornwall. Constantine Bay to be precise.
Whilst on holiday there one year, she meets a dragon. R. Dragon. He is 1500 years old and despite being a dragon, he doesn’t eat people! Susan and the dragon have all sorts of exciting adventures whilst she is on holiday.
It’s a beautiful read and I remember absolutely loving it when I was younger. I’m not sure what happened to my original copy but I recently bought a new copy which has illustrations, which only adds to the story and the charm of the book. This book is the first in a set of four, and although I haven’t read the others, I suspect they are just as good. I’m glad it’s back in my collection.
Have you read Green Smoke – did you enjoy it? Let me know what you think in the comments.
