Publisher's Summary

A young king finds a magical book once owned by his great-great-great-great-great-grandfather and unwittingly sets a wicked beast loose in his kingdom. Now he must find a way to best the beast and win back the love of his subjects. 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. The Book of Beasts is the first in a series of fairy tales with a common theme: Dragons! For children from 5 to 95, these stories are not to be taken seriously. Let your imagination run wild!

Enchanting Classic

This is a wonderful classic story that will delight children and adults who love magic, dragons and adventure. A child king with a magic book that has pictures of creatures that come to life is told in vivid detail by the narrator, each character has a distinct voice. I am looking forward to listening to more books read by Karen Krause. And I will be getting more of E Nesbit's dragon books for my grand kids.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
