About the book:
Set between the wars and touched by both of them, this is a story about the transformative power of creativity... and the jealousy which it can arouse. Whilst being true to the spirit of her late father, the Royal Doulton Art Director and Designer Walter Hayward, the author has spun an exciting tale of loss and restoration, friendship and bullying, in which a close knit community comes together to help eleven year old Walter achieve his dream of creating a great dragon vase... with surprising results! And not everyone is friendly... The lamplit streets and smoky bottle ovens harbour an evil presence. This is a cosy story - with a dark edge!
