When young Lionel is whisked from his nursery one morning and crowned king, he becomes fascinated by the forbidden Book of Beasts in the palace library. But when a real red dragon escapes from the pages and wreaks havoc on the kingdom, Lionel has to act fast to make things right. But how? Edith Nesbit's entertaining stories found a fan in J.K. Rowling, and with good reason. Like Harry Potter
, these selections from The Book of Dragons
are full of just the right mix of magic, adventure, and everyday life.
