Publisher's Summary

When a dragon is discovered up on the Downs, the Boy is not in the least surprised. He's always known the cave there was a dragon cave, so 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!
The reluctant dragon is far more interested in writing and reading poetry than in belching fire to frighten and threaten the townspeople. The boy and the dragon have a wonderful time with St. George, the famous slayer of dragons, in a mock battle of ferocious, but harmless fun.
Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932) was a children's novelist and bank executive, with a long a successful career at the Bank of England. Grahame was born in Scotland, but after the death of his mother when he was five, went to live with his grandmother in a charming country village in Berkshire, England. Grahame and his siblings had an idyllic childhood; their surroundings inspired the setting for The Wind in the Willows. Grahame's writing career was inspired by the stories he told his beloved only child, who suffered poor health during his very short life.

It was good but not great

I enjoyed this story. Especially the Dragon and Saint George, but the boy was a bit whining more then I thought necessary. All in all though it is a classic story and I recommend it but for that one reason gave it 4 stars.
