      Written by JOYCE CHNG | Illustrated by JÉRÉMY PAILLER

      It is the eve of Chinese New Year and Yao is preparing to wake the ancient sky dragon, Shen Long, from his year-long sleep. From the moment Shen Long opens his great amber eyes and unfurls his silver-blue tail, Yao will be propelled on a magical journey through the skies of Singapore to battle the bad luck of the previous year and usher in the good. Will he succeed? Will his grandfather watch over him and protect him from harm?

      So so scrummy, visually. My girls *love* everything dragon right now; reading something with cultural weight to go with it is huge bonus.

      My son is half Chinese so I love reading this book to him which explains about some of his cultural background. He loves it to see the dragon dancing and he shouts “boom boom boom” along with it. It’s obviously had an effect on him since on holiday he now wants to make a sand dragon rather than a sand castle! It’s a pleasure for me to read and he loves it so I would highly recommend it.
