Kind little Edmund loved to find out about things. (And finding out about things is not the same as learning about things, as you do in school.) One day he finds out about the creatures living in the mountain near his village and thinks maybe he doesn't like finding out about things so much after all. But once the creatures have been found, there is nothing to do but find a way to save the village before it's too late.
Edith (E.) Nesbit was a master at weaving imagination and real life into timeless fairy tales, with fantastic mythical creatures, princes and princesses, magic, and just the right touch of silliness. Kind Little Edmond is the eighth and last in a series of fairy tales with a common theme: dragons!

Great story of a curious little boy!
Lovely children's story
I would rank it in my top ten.
I've listened to Karen Krause narrate a couple of other Edith Nesbit stories, and this one was very similar.
The cockatrice was my favorite character in this story. She gave him a very funny voice, which sounded very much like you'd imagine a chicken would sound like, if it could talk.
I laughed pretty hard when Edmund managed to trap the dragons in the tunnel. My son and I yelled BRAVO!
As always, Karen Krause is a true joy to listen to. It's like having your very own British nanny to read you bedtime stories.
