Tradition says that dragons come in many shapes and sizes but they all breathe fire, whisk fierce, scaly tails, and frighten the local villagers. Whenever they can, they capture princesses and take them to their caves. But this is not always the case. In these four delightful stories, Kenneth Grahame and Edith Nesbit introduce some very different kinds of dragons. One, for example, just wants to sit quietly in his cave and write poetry, and he really doesn’t want to fight St. George; in another story, the princess is more strong-minded than the dragon! So prepare to be surprised by the dragons you meet on this recording! This collection includes Kenneth Grahame’s “The Reluctant Dragon” and Edith Nesbit’s “The Island of the Nine Whirlpools,” “The Fiery Dragon,” and “The Last Dragon.”

Author Bio: Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932), Scottish-born author, was raised by his grandmother in Berkshire, England, along the banks of the Thames River. He began working at the Bank of England in 1879. As a pastime, he wrote light nonfiction and articles for newspapers. The Wind in the Willows, originally written as letters to his son, established him as a writer of children’s books and had a deep influence on fantasy literature.

Author Bio: E. Nesbit

Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) lived in England and had dreamed of becoming a poet since she was fifteen years old. After her husband fell ill, it was up to her to support her small family. For the next nineteen years, she wrote novels, essays, articles, poems, and short stories; but it was not until 1899, when The Story of the Treasure Seekers was published, that she achieved great success. Her groundbreaking style of depicting realistic, believable children quickly gained a popularity that has lasted for more than a century.
