Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
All the dragons on Dragon Island are fierce, fiery and ferocious. Except for Norman. And Norman tries desperately to change the others; finally realising that sometimes, others wont change their ways and the only thing to do is walk away. This book has been written on two levels one as an entertaining story for children, but on a deeper level the author sees it as a tool to use in situations of domestic violence, with the message that we can try to change the behaviour around us but if we cant then the best thing to do it to walk away. .
