“John went down the winding stairs to the dungeon, holding the lantern above his head just to see that the dungeon really was empty, as usual. Half of it was empty as usual. But the other side was not empty. It was quite full, and what it was full of was Dragon.”
This collection of delightful fairy tales sparkles with E. Nesbit’s characteristic wit and charm, in bite-sized pieces that are perfect for bedtime. Follow a child king pulled from his nursery after the death of his great-great-however-many-grandfather, or two children on a quest to save England from a dragon infestation. Explore backwards islands, climb dragon-proof towers, and meet the cockatrice. Each tale is awash with humor and insight and dragon-slaying, and will leave you thundering for more.
