A Seaside Adventure!

Monty, Cookie and the spangles are off on their holidays to sunny Pembrokeshire and the beautiful beach at Poppit Sands.

In a cave they meet a new friend, the Poppit Dragon, who is sad because she can’t fly.

Can Monty and the gang save the day?

A funny, sometimes moving, and ultimately uplifting story for children.

Review new 2021

Monty, his friends, and the hoomans have headed to Wales on holiday. Whilst playing on the beach Cookie wanders into a cave and comes across a sad dragon called Dilys. Dilys is sad because her family has flown away and she can’t fly, nor can she breathe fire.

Cookie tells Dilys that her brother Monty is very clever and that he will help her to fly. Monty isn’t so sure but comes up with an idea to speak to the other animal that can fly and see how they do it, starting with Steven Seagull.

Will Monty be able to help Dilys learn to fly?

Monty and the Poppit Dragon is a children’s picture book featuring Monty the dog. There are numerous books featuring Monty and we reviewed two of them last year – ‘I’m not a Pandacow‘ and ‘Monty and Friends Save Christmas‘.

This book is just adorable. Monty is ever so helpful and Cookie is right he is also very clever. As we visit each of the other animals that can fly they all tell Dilys that her wings are too small and that she will never fly. Monty won’t let Dilys give up though, he is determined that she will succeed and tells her she shouldn’t listen to those that tell her she can’t achieve her dream. Good advice.

The full-page illustrations are just beautiful and make the plot come to life. I now can’t wait to read the next Monty book that I have, ‘Monty and the Ocean Rescue: A Plastic Disaster’ as the books are so delightful and fun to read.
