Sintesi dell'editore

The Boy lives in a cottage with his mother and father, and the Dragon lives in a cave on the Downs. The Boy is his only friend. The Dragon is not at all the sort of Dragon one might expect to meet, however: he's polite and friendly.

teaches without being didactic

For whatever reason, I'm revisiting books I read as a kid and books I read to my kids when they were little. I love Kenneth Grahame's way of never talking down to a child in his books. For those who love a good animal character, this one about the dragon, the kid, and St. George is a classic and it teaches diversity and individual identity in a way that no school book could.

THE HAPPY BOHEMIAN DRAGON

THE SIN OF ROMANCING
I am normally a stickler for a dragon having an attitude, being selfish, etc., but I will make an exception for this story. I liked the story and I liked all the characters including the LAZY dragon. This is a fun read and teaches a lot about friendship.

narrator
Only four stars on the narrator, as he did not distinguish well between characters. At times I could not tell who was talking between the three main characters. It was not bad enough to stop you from listening to this. On sale now for $1.95 for almost an hour. That is less than minimum wage was when I was a kid.

My narration could not hold a candle

to Anton Lesser's narration. My children loved his telling of this wonderful tale. I foresee this being a frequently requested listen in our home.

A Bookish Boy, a Lazy Dragon, an Equable Knight

One day a dragon who boasts blue scales and a preference for poetry rather than ???ramping??? starts living in a cave on the downs near the home of a boy who loves reading books, especially natural history and fairy tales. What will happen when the normal people living in the town, you know, the kind who love watching fights, baiting animals, punishing villains, and exterminating pests become aware of the dragon? Will the boy be able to arrange everything to everyone???s satisfaction? Grahame???s story is a humorous revision of usual tales featuring dragons. Although it threatens to become a wee bit precious at times, it???s mostly charming, and its themes about human nature are keen. And the reading by Anton Lesser is fine.
