'A new, laugh-out-loud series from the author and illustrator of Saurus Street. When 9-year-old Billy Fincher visits his local pet shop and gets bitten by a lizard, strange things start to happen. He develops unusual symptoms, which include turning green, breathing fire and growing wings. Knowing these changes will not go down well at school, Billy tries to keep his new identity under wraps, but things go slightly amiss after he sets his math teacher's hair alight. While attempting to lay low at home, Billy gets trapped by his parents, who think he's an oversized exotic lizard, and ship him off to the zoo. Being a dragon turns out to be a little more complicated than Billy expected!' (Publisher's blurb)

'There's nothing normal about Uncle Chunk. He's eccentric, unpredictable and full of deep dark secrets.

'And that's not the only thing Billy's got to worry about. Miss Hicks the werewolf has returned to school and his nemesis Scratchhook is watching his every move . . .
Could this be the end of Billy the dragon?'
