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.
Young listeners will roam the worlds of dragons - from the days of Saint George to the time of the first airplane - in this collection of tales. They'll also add to their dragon knowledge. Did you know that dragons prefer petrol to princesses and that being called "dear" goes a long way toward coercing a dragon to do one's bidding? Bertie Carvel and Emma Gregory narrate with a tone of fondness and with gentle animation. One listens to their storytelling with appreciation for their soothing voices, rich personalities, crisp British accents, and subtle narrative drive. Gregory's lilt brings witches and queens to life and a smile to the listener. Carvel brings mystery and wisdom to commoner, saint, and dragon alike.
