‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Wizzo is learning to be a wizard from his grandfather Wippo, the famous wizard. Instead of doing his wizarding lessons he wants to take a ‘teeny-weeny flight’, but despite his grandfather’s warning not to go anywhere near Dragon’s Rock, as is often the case, the best intentions go awry. Although Wizzo is an ace broom-surfer he ends up where he is not supposed to. Here he meets Dradru a dragon-girl in the magic forest and together they go whizzing and zooming about as they have an adventure.
A magical tale from award-winning German author and illustrator Binette Schroeder, translated by Siobhán Parkinson, it incorporates fairy-tale elements such as the appearance of Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf, humour with the cuddly female baby dragon and a few twists along the way.
