Dragons in the Barn - award-winning debut

Lola is the smartest eight-year-old she herself has ever met. With her sharp mind, she approaches every situation logically and analyses the facts before making any decisions. Sometimes, she gets upset because some of the other kids make fun of her for being smart. Obviously, they’re just jealous. But it still hurts. Because Lola is so smart, she often [MB1] finds it difficult to bond with children her own age as she struggles to engage in creative play.

When Nana asks Lola and her siblings to tidy up the barn, they soon find themselves cornered by three ferocious dragons. While Lola´s siblings quickly slip into this imaginary world and attempt to outsmart the dragons, Lola struggles to immerse herself in the game. Will she find a way to overcome her reluctance and join this amazing make-believe world? After all, there are dragons to tame!


This book bursts with fun ideas for imaginative play while encouraging a responsible approach to screen time. A great read to encourage children to strive for a growth mindset!
