Why We Love This

The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame. London: Holiday House, 1966. First printing thus. This is a '60s reissue of a short story that first appeared as a separate book with Ernest Shepard's illustrations in 1938. An imaginative schoolboy meets the dragon of his dreams and arranges a friendly contest with St. George, who feels he must make a show of fighting the beast. Book and jacket are in very good condition.
