Description
From the author of The Wind In the Willows and illustrator of Winnie the Pooh, comes the original, high-quality edition of this classic story later made into a Disney movie.In this beloved classic, a kind, young boy befriends a poetry-loving dragon living in the Downs above his home. When the town-folk send for St. George to slay the dragon, the boy must come up with a clever plan to save his friend and convince the townsfolk to accept him. A timeless book wth fun for adults and children, the story celebrates difference, empathy, and standing with our friends even when things look tough. A great read-aloud.Continuously in print since 1938, this story appeared as a chapter in Kenneth Grahame's Dream Days and was first published as a stand-alone book with black and white illustrations throughout by Ernest H. Shepard--revisiting a collaboration first made famous through The Wind in the Willows. This 75th anniversary edition features a foreward by prominent children's literature historian and author, Leonard Marcus.
