George and the Dragon

Publisher: Random House

The dragon in this tale is a fire-breathing beast, who can fly higher than the clouds and faster than the birds and knock down castles with his tail, but there's one thing that makes him cower in fear.

When this terrifying creature moves in next door, the dragon soon forgets about the beautiful maiden he's brought back for lunch and flees.

This is good news for the maiden and the dragon's new neighbour, George the mouse, who is soon relocated to a luxury hole in the castle wall. This is a witty modernisation of a popular legend.
