What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

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.

The Book Snob Mom's Rating

This book is Caldecott-winning for a reason—the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, with beautifully detailed spreads and surrounding framing. The text of this legend retold is definitely on the long side, but so beautifully written that kiddos will be getting a taste of true literature while also becoming familiar with a classic tale.
