Monster Hunting - Just Add Dragons (Monster Hunting, Book 3)

By Ian Mark, Illustrated by Louis Ghibault

“A magnificently hilarious masterpiece!” Jenny Pearson on Monster Hunting for Beginners

Our hapless monster hunters are back – and this time they’re tackling dragons! Readers of 7+ and fans of Mega Monster and Shrek will adore this funny fantasy series from NI-based author Ian Mark and Belgian animator Louis Ghibault

When a dragon eats a bus on London Bridge, Jack, Nancy and Stoop are on a mission to track it down. But what does the dragon have to do with the death of Jack’s mum? And why has the monster hunting manual always filed dragons under ‘D’ for DON’T EXIST (things that)? Maybe there’s more to this ‘tail’ than meets the eye . . .

Packed with jokes, monster ‘factoids’ and hilarious footnotes​ while touching gently on processing difficult feelings and emotions, the 3rd title in this gut-bustingly funny, highly illustrated series is perfect for fans of the Dragon Realm series and reluctant readers aged 7-11.
