Sophie is convinced there is a dragon downstairs. 'Every night he came rattling through the kitchen, slinking to the living room and growing in the dark.' Brave Sophie confronts the dragon, each night in a different disguise, but there is never anything there. During the day all is well, but every night the dragon returns. Sophie finally decides she should confront him as herself, and when she does, she finds the family cat! Lots of repetition and references in the pictures that add great fun to the basic story. The warm, family illustrations are acutely observed and enchanting.
