John the Blacksmith doesn't know what is at the bottom of the stairs leading down from the dungeon. With any luck, he'll never find out. Then one day he has to go into the dungeon to fetch more coal and comes face to face with the dragon that has risen from the depths.
It looks like today John's luck may have run out. Or is it just beginning?
Edith (E.) Nesbit was a master at weaving imagination and real life into timeless fairy tales, with fantastic mythical creatures, princes and princesses, magic, and just the right touch of silliness. The Dragon Tamers is the sixth in a series of fairy tales with a common theme: dragons!

It is a delightful story that makes me laughOn a deeper level there is a moral to the taleNot to give a spoiler but the ending is very important
Very good plot and likeable characters, each voice done magicallyShe paints pictures with her portrayal of the words.
I liked that the dragon can purr
Wonderful voices and verbal expression, a special energy
Yes, and listen to again and again
I am looking forward to more books by this author, Edith Nesbitt.I will also look for other narrations by Karen krause
I love audiobooks!!!
I absolutely love the sound of the narrator's voice. That, coupled with an excellent fairy tale, made this extremely enjoyable.
I liked the fact that the town made the ten year old kid into the Mayor.
I find her voice is very understandable, extremely flexible, and wonderfully emotive. My favorite voice was that of the dragon. Hilarious, yet so expressive!
Will brains triumph over brawn? Or will they become barbecue?
Just want to say that, for a quick 40 minute listen, this story imparted some great wisdom. Good to know, if I ever find a dragon in my dungeon!
