Abstract:

Who doesn't love dragons? Whether they're breathing fire or thrashing their tails, frightful or friendly, gigantic or tiny, their adventures are always filled with magic and surprises -- and sometimes even humor.

In this exciting collection, E. Nesbit unleashes a flock of these mysterious, wild, and unpredictable creatures. Here you will meet a dragon who flies out of an enchanted book and swallows an entire soccer team; two children who try to wake St. George while dragons of all shapes and sizes descend on England; and wicked Prince Tiresome, who trades half his kingdom with a pigkeeper to catch a raging dragon. Five more stories will take you to worlds overflowing with daring adventure, cunning trickery, and madcap mayhem.

The Book of Dragons, featuring eight of E. Nesbit's best stories and all of the original illustrations by H.R. Millar, returns one hundred years after its original publication to delight and enchant a new generation of readers.
