A collection of eight children's stories by renowned children’s author E. Nesbit. Each story in The Book of Dragons is linked through the common theme of…dragons, of course.

Dragons -- of all sorts -- make for marvelous fun, and this collection of madcap tales is filled with them. Some of the legendary monsters are funny and mischievous, others are a bit frightening, and a number of them are wild and unpredictable. There's a dragon made of ice, another that takes refuge in the General Post Office, a scaly creature that carries off the largest elephant in a zoo, and even a dragon whose gentle purring comforts a tiny tot. 

And who challenges these amazing creatures? Why, daring heroes, of course, as well as a wicked prince, and even an entire soccer team -again at a fire-breathing brute that flies out of the pages of an enchanted book.

E. (Edith) Nesbit (1858-1924) was one of the pioneers of fantasy fiction for children. Her classic novels have remained popular with children for more than a century.

These fantastical tales of magical fun would make for perfect bedtime reading material and are deserving of a place on any family bookshelf.
