How to Train Your Dragon meets Robinson Crusoe in this high-flying dragon adventure from Lindsay Galvin!
‘A striking and original adventure … just the sort of story I love.’ EMMA CARROLL
‘WHAT a voyage! [Darwin’s Dragons] is everything you hope it will be …’ LUCY STRANGE
‘[A] beautifully fictionalised story’ THE TELEGRAPH
Syms Covington has landed the job of a lifetime – cabin boy and fiddler on Charles Darwin’s Beagle – but when he is separated from the crew during a storm, his life takes a truly extraordinary turn.
Shipwrecked on a Galapagos island, he makes a discovery that could change the world – and make his fortune. But should he share his find, or will it lead to the extinction of a legendary species?
There’s one person who could help, but he’s busy writing a book ...
Based on a true story and Charles Darwin’s real journal!
Perfect for fans of Cornelia Funke’s Dragon Rider or Cressida Cowell’s How to Train Your Dragon series.
Effortlessly blends exciting adventure with a rip-roaring historical story and non-fiction elements.
