The Dragon of Butter was a satisfying read I've come to expect from Ms Ormiston-Smith. The story was fun, easy to read and appropriate for any age group to enjoy.She is accomplished at bringing the reader into her fictional world with small details. The characters were not only believable but likable as well, and placed in a setting that enhanced the believability of the story as a whole. The story brightened my day. I loved it.

The Dragon of Butter is a quirky little read and yet another excellent short story from Ms Ormiston-Smith. She is one of the most versatile writers I’ve come across, and I’ve found every one of her books able to transport me into their characters’ worlds. Her imagery is fantastic. In this, I could almost smell the hay, dung and cheese because the writing style had a theatrical quality about it. That said, it was coupled with impeccable comedy timing, which I’ve come to expect from Ms Ormiston-Smith’s work.

This story is an account of how Sir Leopold de Draco-Butyris was elevated to the rank of Baronet. I loved the characters’ names, such as Buttercup and Daisy. They conjure images of a big old dairy-fest! But that’s what this writer does. It’s the little things throughout that she makes use of, like the charming dialogue in this one, which help you fall for the characters and their situation. For me, The Dragon of Butter had almost a cartoon quality to it, and I loved that. It didn’t take me long to read. In fact, it was just what I needed for my tea break, but I would highly recommend it.

A short fairy story, but a lot of buttery fun, involving a king wishing to offload his dull daughter, a courtier with an inflated ego, an over ambitious artist, a dithering dairyman, a dairymaid and her beau, a ne'er to well dreamer. An enjoyable read which will being a smile to your face, nicely resolved but whatever happened to that nice Prince Lorn?
