Leo & the Lightning Dragons
Everybody in the kingdom is supporting the brave knight Leo in his battle against his fearsome dragons. They try lots of different things to help him defeat them but eventually Leo realises that the most important thing to do is to believe in himself.
This beautifully illustrated book with a poignant and uplifting rhyming story encourages children to persevere and find strength in the face of adversity, even when it seems that nothing is working.

Reviews from Amazon
Leo and the Lightning Dragons is an absolutely magical little rhyming story book which is so beautifully illustrated, with an extremely eye-catching cover.
I have a daughter with a learning disability who loves picture and has been fighting her own lightning dragons for 30 years. At last here's a book that's been written and illustrated with people like her in mind. I can't recommend this book highly enough for anyone with epilepsy, for anyone who knows someone with epilepsy or just as a fantastic story.
The story was beautifully written and illustrated, my son really likes it. I really like that they have included sensory play at the back of the book to bring the book to life. This book is more than just a story, it is a real boys life, which makes it even more special and I hope they do find something to help Leo and wish them every success with the book.
The illustrations really bring this story to life and children and adults alike will enjoy this tale, at the end there are some suggestions for making Leo and Lightning Dragon a sensory story that would be good to utilise in a nursery home or care environment.
