#Win Arvor’s Schooldays to mark Dyslexia Awareness Week

Win one of three copies of Arvors School Days to mark Dyslexia Awareness. Closes 2nd December. A great books for kids!

To mark Dyslexia Awareness Week we are giving away 3 copies of Arvor’s Schooldays by Jonathan Ferrier (Mereo Books; £8.50) which tells the story of a young dyslexic dragon who finds school particularly challenging…

When Arvor’s father Colonel Grendel decides to send him to Caderbrith, a boarding school for dragons, neither he nor his son realise what problems Arvor is going to have there.

Arvor really struggles with his school subjects: he is bad at spelling, hopeless at games, terrible at flying and a disastrous fire-breather. The teachers get cross with him, and none of his classmates want him on their team. In fact, he’s quite a disappointment to his stern father.

But Arvor has excellent qualities too; he is kind, gentle, and loyal. Actually, he’s very much the sort of dragon you would want for a friend. Can his big heart get him through his haphazard schooldays? Follow Arvor in his trials and triumphs at Caderbrith, as his curiosity leads him into all sorts of adventures: tackling school bullies, sneaking out of bounds, being accused of plagiarism, organising a school disco, and risking his neck to save the school’s prized Golden Egg trophy

Accompanied by Matt Rowe’s lively drawings, Arvor’s Schooldays is a heart-warming tale that will appeal to young readers of all ages – and shows the value of being true to yourself.
