With the help of his trusty steed - an eccentric goat called Albrecht - Dave hopes to convince the court that being rather small, distinctly green, and, frankly, A DRAGON is no barrier to knighthood. GASP as he jousts with Sir Gnasty! DUCK as he tries to pacify brawling peasants! And CHEER as he finally wins his Special Knight's Hat!

  • Praise for Steven Seagull: Full of cross-over jokes which will appeal to children and adults too, making it a perfect book to share. - Parents in Touch
  • Praise for Nuts in Space: Dolans illustrations are a dippy delight and the jokes in the many speech bubbles funny enough to stand the test of many readings. A classic in the cracking. - Childrens Book of the Week, The Times
  • Praise for Weasels: Dolan's hysterical picture book follows the weasels at work on the day they plan to seize global power but unexpected obstacles keep thwarting their efforts, from faulty machinery to over-zealous health and safety inspectors [] Every page is a treasure trove of hilarity and it will take several reads to pick up on all the clever little details which Dolan has scattered about the place. Its also fun to follow the progress of individual weasels as the story unfolds keep an eye out for the one with the huge drill, who happens to be my personal favourite. - Picture Book of the Month, The Independent
