Book 10 - The Dragonsitter in the Land of Dragons
Eddie has travelled with his uncle Morton to Mongolia, in hope of being one of the few to watch the Great Dragon Battle Ceremony.

Told in emails between Eddie and his mum, The Dragonsitter in the Land of the Dragons is an extra actionpacked tale of misunderstandings, monsters and Mars bars.
