Publisher Comments:

This special new paperback edition of St. George and the Dragon commemorates the 25th Anniversary of the Caldecott Award-winning picture book. Hodges retells an exciting segment from Spenser's The Faerie Queene, in which the Red Cross Knight slays a dreadful dragon that has been terrorizing the countryside for years, bringing peace and joy back to the land. Featuring a fresh new cover design - with artwork that highlights the dragon adventure within - and distinctive embossed gold Caldecott Award sticker, this is the perfect way to introduce the classic tale to a whole new generation of readers.

This is such a great book for kids! I grew up having it read to me and have passed it along to all my nieces and nephews, who all love it as well. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous (though, be warned a few are a little bloody, I've found that kids don’t notice or care, it’s the adults that have more of an issue). The author also did a great job of condensing the story down for a younger audience while still making it coherent and true to the original story. I still treasure my original copy.
