The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame
A classic retelling of St George and the Dragon from the author of The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame.
`Now, dragon,' said the Boy imploringly. `You've got to fight him some time of other you know, 'cos he's St George and you're the dragon. Better get it over, and then we can go on with the sonnets.' Everyone knows St George has to do battle with the dragon, but what happens when the dragon simply won't fight St George?
The Reluctant Dragon is a funny story of bravery, friendship and derring-do. This children's classic is made even more collectable thanks to the beautiful illustrations by E.H. Shepard, the artist behind the original illustrations for The Wind in the Willows and the man who drew Winnie-the-Pooh.
A classic childhood fantasy for everyone who loved Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and Peter Pan. Perfect for early readers aged 8 and up.
