This is a title in the fantastic First Reading series, aimed at children who are beginning to read. When a young boy meets a dragon who doesn't believe in violence he has to defend his new friend from the slash-happy St. George the dragonslayer. This key series was developed in conjunction with reading expert Allison Kelly from the University of Surrey, a reading specialist. Every title has clear and compelling text that allows children to build their burgeoning reading skills and is accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations.
