My review…..

Leo and the Lightning Dragons is an absolutely magical little rhyming story book which is so beautifully illustrated, with an extremely eye-catching cover.

Leo is fighting dragons, but not the kind you might be thinking of. Leo’s dragons are “disguised as lightning crackling inside his head”. Many people try to help Leo to beat the dragons, but ultimately he defeats them himself out of sheer determination and by never giving up!

A very inspirational story with a lesson for us all. I have no doubt it will be enjoyed by all, young or old!

Leo will stay in my thoughts for a very long time to come.

Leo and the Lightning Dragons


Everybody in the kingdom is supporting the brave knight Leo in his battle against his fearsome dragons. They try lots of different things to help him defeat them but eventually Leo realises that the most important thing to do is to believe in himself. This beautifully illustrated book with a poignant and uplifting rhyming story encourages children to persevere and find strength in the face of adversity, even when it seems that nothing is working. Written by Gill White for her son Leo who suffers from Ohtahara Syndrome, an extremely rare form of epilepsy, and beautifully illustrated by Fife artist Gilli B, this story has been positively received by parents of children with complex needs, by care workers and medical staff and by parents of healthy young children who love the book simply as an adventure story. All royalties from the sale of this book will go to CHAS (Children’s Hospices across Scotland).
