Polly Ho-Yen is one of our favourite storytellers. Her books are packed with empathy, magic and imagination. Here she collaborates once again with inclusive indie publisher Knights Of to bring us a tale that will speak to all readers and all generations. Magic, and highly recommended.


Yara has only glimpsed the last dragon on Earth twice. She’s got other things to worry about: her sister is in hospital, her parents are panicking, and her new teacher has labelled her a troublemaker and wants her out. But one evening, in the glow of the lights of the shopping centre in Milton Keynes, Yara finds herself being watched by the last dragon and, before it departs, it leaves her a gift: its only egg. Entrusted with the care of the last dragon egg, Yara discovers it is more powerful than she could ever have imagined. But there are others who want it and they’ll stop at nothing to steal it for themselves... A moving story about bravery, self-belief and our responsibility to protect the natural world.

Polly Ho-Yen used to be a primary school teacher in London and while she was teaching there, she would get up very early in the morning to write stories. She lives in Bristol with her husband and daughter. Polly has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, Blue Peter Book Award, and the Federation of Children’s Book Groups Book Award for her debut The Boy in the Tower.
