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.
