Publisher's Summary

"It all started when Effie got something in her eye…" and before the week was out, the country was overrun with dragons of all sizes. Effie and Harry decide something must be done, so they set out to wake St. George. 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 Deliverers of Their Country is the third in a series of fairy tales with a common theme: Dragons! For children from five to 95, these stories are not to be taken seriously. Let your imagination run wild!

    Story
    "A unique joy."

    This classic stand-alone dragon tale is exciting and fun. My kids (5 and 9) listened to it on the edge of their seats from beginning to end. In fact, I really enjoyed it too. It is a real adventure and St. George even makes a hilarious appearance. Kids who like a touch of fantasy in their stories will LOVE this book.

    Story
    "Great book for kids!!"

    This is a fun adorable read for kids. I fondly recall reading these in much younger days and this was a happy revisit.

    The story is a simple fantasy with plenty of fun elements. It is enchanting from beginning to end. I read this with my 6 year old niece, and she was enthralled! These are such lovely stories with rich characters and creative situations.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Karen Krause, who is delightful. She has a nice steady pace that moves with the story. I love her accent, it is like having your own British nanny to read to you! She was inventive and fun with the character voices. I imagine she would we just as wonderful in person at a children's story hour! I delight for my ears!

    Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thought, opinions and ratings are my own.
