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 a used copy in acceptable condition, with some creasing and general wear throughout.
By Margaret Hodges, illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman. Paperback, 32 pages. Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 1990.
