The Dragons 1: Camelot

Front Cover
Random House Australia, Oct 1, 2010 - Juvenile Fiction - 240 pages
What do you get when you cross the legendary heroes of Camelot with the legendary humour of Colin Thompson? The Dragons!

In the days when dragons roamed the earth turning people into toast, a mighty King ruled the world. This King lived in the great castle of Camelot in the beautiful island of Avalon. Guided by the great wizard Merlin, this King became a legend and his name was Arthur.

The trouble with legends is that every time their stories are told they become more and more fabulous, so useless twits are often turned into superheroes.This is the true story of King Arthur, who was not a superhero. He was a nasty little spoilt brat who was totally up himself.

Or was he . . .?
