The villagers, depicted with mostly fixed expressions, display a variety of skin tones, but the principal human characters are almost all white. Reading-comprehension questions conclude the book. Pleasant if unexceptional.

Synopsis

Follow the fearless Georgie as she befriends a hungry dragon and shows others not to judge on first appearances in The Extremely Greedy Dragon. The village of Little Chiddling has a big problem. A sleeping dragon, that cannot be woken, is fast asleep on a railway line! The Mayor offers a reward to anyone that can move the dragon off the tracks. Georgie Johnson courageously takes up the task and manages to wake the dragon up by rustling a packet of crisps. The crisps are quickly gobbled up and it's not long before the dragon visits a cricket match, a barbecue and even a wedding! Will the dragon get up to trouble or will he be helpful to the village of Little Chiddling?
