A Caldecott Medal-winning tale of bravery, perseverance, and peace. Saint George and the Dragon retells the segment from Spenser's The Faerie Queene , in which George, the Red Cross Knight, slays the dreadful dragon that has been terrorizing the countryside for years and brings joy to the land. This beautifully illustrated story is a lovely addition to any collection of fairytales or folk lore.


This is an extraordinary book, in both visual and storytelling quality. Notable also is the role of the princess who accompanies the brave St. George and assists him in his quest.
