A rollicking fairy-tale adventure from the makers of The Adventures of Alfie Onion, The Cherry Pie Princess and Tom & Tallulah and the Witches' Feast.
Princess Persephone Stephanie Tiffany Jane (“Pom” for short) HATES being a princess. Her parents have no time for her – especially her dad, the King of Strüggen, who’s busy plotting against the neighbouring kingdom of Thrum. So when a friendly young orphan named Billy appears at the palace, Pom decides to run off with him. She’s after adventure, and knows exactly where she’ll find it: Bullion Island, a tiny patch of land that stands exactly between Strüggen and Thrum.
Legend has it that there's pirate treasure hiding in Bullion's sea-caves, guarded by a fearsome dragon – but nobody knows for sure, because no sailor has managed a return trip. But Pom isn’t afraid of dragons … or anything else!
• A princess and a pauper set off to explore an enchanted island – the site of buried gold, guarded by a fearsome dragon.
• In 2017, Vivian was the recipient of Scottish BookTrust's Outstanding Achievement Award.
