    Let me first say that the illustrations are amazing and bring the text to a whole new level.  Done in acrylics and coloured pencil they are excellent.  This touching, moving and inspiring story centres around a little boy named Rupert who is out in the blistering cold one day, and gets so cold he nearly turns purple and numb.  He stumbles upon a golden egg that is warm to the touch so he scoops it up and brings it home hoping it will bring warmth to his family.  When the egg finally hatches a surprise awaits him.  Inside the egg was developing an adorable fire dragon.  When his parents see what emerges they are horrified because they know that dragons mean trouble.  




    Rupert names his baby dragon Crumpet.  They bond and become very close friends.  Crumpet is perfect to dry the wash and for hugging when he is small...but as he grows....and he does.....BIG....an even BIGGER problem arises.  As Crumpet evolves so does his heating system.  His thermostat lands on boiling.  He becomes hotter and hotter and cannot control his ever rising temperature.  Because the little dragon does not know how to solve his monumental problem it is left up to his friend Rupert to find a solution.  What is the anti-dote for being all fired-up?  Is there one?  Can Crumpet be a potential danger to everyone around him?  No spoilers from me but I know you will be curious enough to want to get a copy of this book and find out it all comes together in the end.  This is a beautiful, heartwarming tale that shines a spotlight on belonging and acceptance.  Highly recommend by me.
