Reluctant Dragon

Reluctant Dragon

by Kenneth Grahame, Michael Hague (Illustrator)
Publisher: Holiday House
Trade Paperback, 57 pages
Price: $14.99

It’s a good thing for the Dragon that he was discovered by the Boy, for the Boy knows about dragons and is not at all frightened. The two of them, as they are both fond of poetry and are quite well-cultured, soon become great friends. But the rest of the village isn’t convinced of the dragon’s meek nature, and calls for St. George the Dragon killer. It’s up to the Boy to arrange things and try to persuade everyone to come to an amicable agreement.

Told with humor and delightfully tongue-in-cheek, this is a tale that both children and adults will enjoy.
