Synopsis: With the help of a bright little boy, a poetic dragon defies stereotypes in a humorous tale by the author of THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS, abridged and splendidly illustrated by Inga Moore.
Dragons are a scourge and must be abolished ? at least, that's what all the villagers say. It doesn't seem to matter that this particular dragon wouldn't hurt a fly and is more than content to laze by his cave and make up poetry. He certainly doesn't want to fight, though it seems he will have no choice when St. George arrives on his warhorse with golden armor gleaming, carrying the longest, wickedest spear you ever did see. Still, the dragon does have one friend ? the shepherd's son, a small boy with a great deal of sense and imagination. Will he find a way to solve the dragon¹s dilemma?
About the Author:
Kenneth Grahame was born in 1859. From the age of five, he lived with his grandmother in Cookham Dean, Berkshire, where he spent a lot of time on the banks of the River Thames. It was here that he wrote THE RELUCTANT DRAGON, which was first published in DREAM DAYS in 1898, ten years before the publication of his most famous work, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS.
Inga Moore has written and illustrated numerous children's picture books. She abridged and illustrated THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS in two acclaimed volumes, THE RIVER BANK and THE ADVENTURES OF TOAD, as well as E. Nesbit's THE BOOK OF BEASTS. Inga Moore lives in Gloucestershire, England.
