Amazing but not perfect
Very far fetched but very, very entertaining. Good illustrations. Amazing but not perfect. Luis, age 10
Loved the story!
I loved the story - fast flowing, with each chapter leaving you waiting to find out what happened next. Disappointment came first as I thought there were more adventures you could have got from the character - then I realised there was more to come. Can't wait - thanks Mark Brenda Healan St Helens RC Primary School Caerphilly

Ryan age 9
Awsome book
I think this is a great book, and I would recommend it to anyone in the world, I thought it was so good that I couldn't put it down, I read in walking back from school, eating dinner, everywhere even after I had to go to bed, again I recommend this book and hope to see more (or even a part 2!) Matthew age 9
A book of mystery, humour and friendship
Grandpa and Tyler go on a quest to find their missing family members and also solve the mystery of the mountain. I like the way this book shows the friendship between Tyler and Rhydian because you wouldn't think a dragon could be friendly. There are lots of funny parts in the story. I liked the part where Tyler thinks the gold in Rhydian's secret cave is gold but it is actually something else! Harrison
Amazing book full of freindship and adventure
Brilliant book! The main character Rhydian is a dragon who eats fruit and lives in Rudry Mountain, he helps Grandpa and Tyler with their quest to find his family... by doing this they also solve the mystery of the mountain. I found the book easy to read and liked the Dragon Appendix - A brief history of Dragons because it explains the different types of dragons. Morgan
Amazing book full of mystery and adventure .
Grandpa and Tyler go on a adventure to find out why snow never settled on Rudry mountain. Tyler discovers a secret entrance and finds Rhydian who is a dragon that eats cooked fruit and together they become great friends and solve the mystery of the mountain. It is a great book about friendship and family. I would recommend this book because it keeps you guessing and make you want to read on. Ieuan
Dragon Lovers Beware
Amazing book full of friendship, adventure and mystery. Mark Dorey takes you on an adventure of revealing the secrets of Rudry mountain. The main characters Rhydian (dragon),Tyler and Grandpa all set off to find missing family members. I really enjoyed the book and think it is a great story for children my age. Ruben
Fly high with Rhydian, Tyler and Grandpa

The Mystery of the Un-Snowy Mountain and the Great Deep Sleep Miscalculation

Something Very Strange...


For some strange reason, snow never, ever settles on

Rudry Mountain

  Some said it was Magic...

             ... or perhaps the Mountain

   was made of Hot Rock...


but the Truth lay somewhere in between...


What’s more, lots of fresh fruit has been mysteriously vanishing from the greenhouses of Rudry village...


Tyler and his Grandpa set out on an unexpected adventure to unravel the secrets of the Mountain and so much more!
