Featured books by Chris d'Lacey

Chris d'Lacey got a late start on his writing career, but he's made up for lost time — he's the author of more than 25 books for kids. Though he's best known for his dragon novels, The Last Dragon Chronicles and The Dragons of Wayward Crescent, he's also written about polar bears, pigeons, squirrels, snails, pirates, ducks, and soccer (called football outside the U.S.) Some of his books are based on real life, others are pure fantasy, but they all share d'Lacey's warm and quirky sense of humor.
