Here is a collection of four delightful dragon stories by two master writers for children. "The Reluctant Dragon" is the best known, but the others are equally appealing. In "The Reluctant Dragon", a boy discovers a dragon in a nearby cave. The villagers want to send for St George to slay him, but he is a friendly dragon and doesn't want to fight! In "The Island of Nine Whirlpools", a princess is imprisoned and a suitor has to get past the dragon in order to marry her. In "The Fiery Dragon", Princess Sabrinetta is kept in a dragon-proof tower, but a fiery dragon is roaming the neighbourhood. Finally, in "The Last Dragon", the King of Cornwall's daughter doesn't want to be tied to a rock awaiting a prince to rescue her from the clutches of a dragon. In any case, there is only one dragon left alive. This title is presented with lively music and even the occasional amusing sound effect.
