Today’s story is written by Kenneth Grahame, who also wrote The Wind in the Willows. The Reluctant Dragon first appeared as a chapter in his book Dream Days. The story takes place in the Berkshire Downs in Oxfordshire, where the author lived and where, according to legend, St. George did fight a dragon.
And now, The Reluctant Dragon, by Kenneth Grahame.
