A collection of short stories written by children living in the City of London.
“Where shall I go today, and what should I do?” Coltale, the dragon, can travel anywhere he wants to go. He is a friendly dragon but people are often scared when they see him. Why? Because dragons breathe fire! And fire can hurt people. Coltale doesn’t want to hurt anyone. In fact, he only wants to make friends and help everyone he meets.
Follow Coltale and his friends on his exciting adventures with these short stories… written by children just like you!
We have produced the first collection as an audiobook. We've uploaded Chapter 4 to get you started!
If your child attends an Early Years setting they will be bringing home a new book published in December 2022 called “The Further Adventures of Coltale the Dragon” These are further stories inspired by the children of the City of London. You can see this eBook in our download section.
Each week we provide Coltale tops tips, Makaton, and Rhyme time on our social media channels to support your child’s learning.
