When a dragon is discovered up on the Downs, the Boy is not in the least surprised. He’s always known that cave was a dragon cave—it seems only right for a dragon to be living in it.

The Boy decides to pay a visit to the cave, and he thinks he knows just what to expect. But this particular dragon is not a bit like the ones in fairy tales.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Renee Bush | 2/20/2014

    " Cute and entertaining; not THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS, nor much like it, but a good short read, especially for dragon-lovers. "

    " This is a darling book. It's longer (we read it on a read-a-thon day) but the story is creative and funny and plus it's a great vocabulary builder. I would look for an edition with as many illustrations as possible--especially with a BLUE dragon--he's described in detail in the book, and he's BLUE!!! :) "

    " I thought this book was very charming. Bea was interested while we were reading and chuckled along appropriately - but afterwards said she didn't really get it. She hasn't had a childhood rich in dragon/knight/fairytale stuff so maybe that's it? She was also really stymied by the "need" for a fight. Neither the story nor I could make it clear for her. That's a good thing overall, I guess! "

    " This wonderful classic story of a passive and friendly dragon who is forced to stage a battle with the gallant Sir George to appease the complacent townsfolk is a story for all ages. This version features colorful and beautiful illustrations by Inga Moore. The original was published in 1898 in chapter book format, making this picture book an abridged tale perfect for nighttime must read. "
