This classic 19th-century children’s tale, written by Kenneth Grahame, tells the story of a young boy who discovers a peaceful - and highly intellectual - dragon in the countryside around his small town...but when his fellow villagers discover the fantastic creature as well, they demand that famed dragon-slayer St. George kill the beast. Luckily, even St. George seems to understand that this is a very special dragon...but what kind of plan can the three unlikely allies come up with to save this mythological monster’s life?
Bertie Carvel has a light, pleasant voice with a slight sing-songy quality well-suited to the tone of this whimsical little tale.
This is a story from the Dragon Tales collection.
Here is a collection of four delightful dragon stories by two master writers for children: "The Reluctant Dragon" by Kenneth Grahame and "The Island of the Nine Whirlpools", "The Fiery Dragon", and "The Last Dragon" by Edith Nesbit. Presented with lively music and even the occasional amusing sound effect.
