Dilwyn The Welsh Dragon in Partnership with The Royal Mint
In the valleys of Wales, everyone at The Royal Mint is hard at work, making coins. But one night, a baby red dragon hatches from a magical egg! The makers name him Dilwyn and take care of him until he’s big enough to guard their coins. Every night Dilwyn sleeps high up in the rafters keeping watch; until two robbers foolishly try to break in . . .
Dilwyn The Welsh Dragon cleverly combines the mythical red Welsh dragon with factual information about the Royal Mint in this fun and engaging story. The cheerful, easy to read rhyming text brings this story to life for little readers, accompanied by the endearing and lively illustrations by Jessica Rose. Aimed at children aged between 2and 5 years old, this book uses simple language to stimulate reading and comprehension skills.

Owlet Press was founded by Samuel Langley-Swain in 2018, working with authors and illustrators with a shared passion – picture books which reflect the true diversity in children’s lives. Focusing on the challenges children face today and packaging these big issues into inclusive and accessible stories for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This indie children’s book publisher aims to change the world one book at a time, along with the best authors and illustrators to tell these stories.
Owlet Press have always published books that are 'incidentally inclusive' from day one and look to push this further with every title. With authors and illustrators from all walks of life - diversity is the driving ethos within this publisher. Owlet believe that it is key for young readers of colour to see children like them (and for white, non-disabled children to see children that don't always look like them) in books experiencing the joy and magic of playful, imaginative stories - a belief that we share at Babipur.
