Not everyone can meet a dragon. But reading this book is the next best. Then, brilliantly, Green Smoke was pointed out to me - the first in Rosemary Manning's series and the one where Sue meets R. Dragon (nope, can't reveal that, sorry) while on holiday in Cornwall with her parents. Essentially, Green Smoke is a series of short stories - told by Dragon to Sue - strung together by the loose holiday narrative.

  • My favorite story as a child. I was about 8 when i read this book. I am near 70 and still love this story. I think no child should grow up without reading this story. It awakes imagination and promotes kinship with creatures that can have tea and share a biscuit . My daughter found a copy and i cherish it. The sequels could not hold my imagination, but may for the boy who finds the old lonely dragon.

  • Cute children's story!

  • This was a wonderful story.

  • I had very fond memories of this book from my childhood, so snapped up a copy when I saw it back in print.

    It's a very simple story (or maybe series of stories?) in which a girl called Susan meets a dragon while on holiday in Cornwall. Her parents are content to let her explore the beaches and caves by herself, so most days she manages to sneak off and visit him (usually taking a bun or some biscuits to mollify the eccentric creature). He either takes her to see something or else tells her a tall tale, and that's pretty much it.

    There isn't much in the way of action or adventure here, but the charm of the book lies in the dialogue between Susan and the dragon. It's beautifully quaint (sometimes laugh-out-loud ludicrous) and raises a big smile on pretty much every page. The dragon happens to be a charming, very cultured dragon who learned his manners at the court of King Arthur. Occasionally - like an old scholar recalling the wildness of his undergraduate days - he notes with regret the fact that he used to devour maidens.

    Re-reading it as an adult, there's definitely a lot less plot than I remembered, but like I say - every page managed to raise a smile. It's a very (wonderfully) old-fashioned book, and worth picking up if you want to be transported back to a happier time - when children could explore beaches by themselves, and a bun could buy you a dragonback ride to Tintagel Castle!

  • I stumbled across a copy of GREEN SMOKE at the used book store, and grabbed it as it had that great vintage story "look" to it. I was right. I just finished reading it aloud to my two eight year olds and my ten year old. Boy and girl alike, they loved it and were sad to see it end. They laughed outloud at much of the dragon's dialogue, and my oldest is asking when she will learn more about King Arthur. Now I see that another reviewer mentioned sequels...publishers, bring these gems back!
