Aunt Severe and the Dragons by Nick Garlick
Andersen Press ISBN 9781849390552

Daniel's parents are explorers. After their latest expedition they vanish so Daniel has to go and live with his very strict and very odd Great-Aunt Emily - known to Daniel as Aunt Severe. He is not the least bit happy about this but his problems worsen when he finds four lost dragons hiding in the garden. This is a beautifully written story, with imaginative characters, that is fun to read from beginning to end.
