This beautifully illustrated children's book is about loss and survival. It will be enjoyed by children and adults alike, and is ideal for parents and professionals to read with children who find it hard to love and be loved.

Malpas the dragon flies around the world, breathing fire, screaming, moaning and farting. He makes everybody afraid. Malpas was treated badly by his parents, who taught him to be a rude, angry dragon, but this meant that he was also unloved and lonely.

His only friend, Haley, finds that although she doesn't have much success offering help to the sad and smelly dragon, Malpas ends up helping her to help others who are lonely. Without knowing it, Malpas begins to warm their hearts.
