DESCRIPTION 

Set in the days when monsters and giants and fairy folk lived in England, this retelling of a classic and well-loved tale recounts the battle between Saint George and the Dragon - a creature so huge and fearsome that his tail swept the land behind him for almost half a mile, and whose "deep jaws gaped wide, showing three rows of iron teeth ready to devour his prey. The text by Margaret Hodges was adapted from Edmund Spenser’s epic poem called The Faerie Queene.
