Join Derby Libraries on our Big Family Read and encourage your family to join in too. Rediscover the joy of reading, reading together and talking about what you have read!
The book we have chosen is Let Sleeping Dragons Lie by Garth Nix and Sean Williams.
A funny fantasy triumph!
Odo and Eleanor are now officially knights, helped (and sometimes hindered) by their magical but rather difficult to control magical swords. However, if they thought life as a knight was going to be easy, they are wrong! Before they know it they and their talking swords join a bold quest to rescue a monarch, vanquish deadly beasts, confound a prophecy, and (if they are lucky) avoid stepping on the tail.
The Big Family Read is taking place from 1 Oct to 30 Nov. Throughout this time Derby Libraries will have multiple downloads of both the eBook and eAudiobook available online as well as paper copies at all libraries to borrow. Check our Library catalogue, visit your local library or download our BorrowBox App.
