First published in 1900, The Book Of Dragons is one of Edith Nesbit's best loved and most inventive children's books. Her heroes and heroines are children faced unexpectedly with real live dragons, which are fiery, fierce, ravenous, irritating, grumpy, furry and even gifted cooks! They appear from caves, from the pages of a magical book, at the North Pole or from mysterious dungeons where nobody dares enter. Her stories are superbly written and surprise and delight at every turn. Absolutely riveting.

    " E. Nesbit has been a favorite of mine since childhood, and I am delighted to say the stories hold up. My favorite kind of work, with sincere and fantastical story-telling for the young and the occasional witty aside slipped in for the more mature reader. "As well-plowed as any young man at Oxford," she describes the fields in one instance... "

    " Yet another childhood favorite that escaped Mama's purge. I used to read this when I wanted to kill a few hours and it's one of my favorite of the favorites. "

    " We were at the used book store. My 2 year old picked this book, and my wife put it back. She picked it up 2 or 3 more times, and it was only $1, so I figured I should buy it. It was fairly good. It is a collection of stories about dragons aimed at pre-teens. "
