Leo and the Lightning Dragons Workshop – Largo Arts Week

22nd July 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

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.

Author Gill White & Illustrator Gillian Barrie hold a special community workshop for families about Leo and the dragons.

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).
