I particularly liked this story because it has such as positive `David and Goliath' type message. The dragon is a powerful and strong creature who seemingly cannot be vanquished; but he is scared of George, the little mouse who comes round to borrow some sugar for his tea.
A charming tale and wonderful (and somewhat traditional) illustrations; I'll enjoy reading this with the kids..
The illustrations are truly stunning- they fill the page, with just one line of large text at the bottom, making it ideal for those just starting to read for themselves, whilst non-readers will find they soon remember the words that go with each picture, and will enjoy joining in. My son loves it when we cuddle up, turn the light down low and whisper together: "Far, far away, in the high, high mountains, in a deep, deep valley, in a dark, dark cave...there lived (pause for effect) A MIGHTY DRAGON!"(cue dramatic voice).
The story itself, whilst starting off quite dramatically is actually a lighthearted tale of how the fierce & terrible dragon is secretly afraid of mice, and what happens when one (the George of the title) moves into the cave next door. It's fun to read out loud for adults too, which can't be bad when you sometimes find the same book requested several times a day for weeks on end.
All in all a lovely book for younger children who like all things dragon-related!
