George, the Dragon and the Princess

Overview


Far, far away over the high, high mountains in an old castle wall, in a tiny, tiny hole there lives a little mouse called George. He’s very small and rather timid and he can be a bit clumsy too. In fact, poor George is so hopeless that he can't even make lunch without burning his cheese on toast! But when a huge and terrifying dragon attacks the castle, George springs into action. Because as fans of George and the Dragon know only too well, George has a very special talent. ...

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There is about a score of children's book illustrators nowadays whose draughtsmanship is really distinguished. Chris Wormell is one of them."  —Sunday Times on George and the Dragon

“Quirky and ebullient, this is excitingly plotted, vividly illustrated, and has a classy enduring feel."  —Independent on George and the Dragon

“The drawings are excellent. You'd think Wormell had a real dragon in his studio.”  —Daily Telegraph on George and the Dragon

“Splendid spreads, both panoramic and close-ups.”  —The Children’s Bookseller

“Gorgeous pictures add so much to this simple story that is funny and warm hearted.”  —Primary Times

Children's Literature - L. A. Gallaway
George is a small mouse with a big talent—he can scare a dragon! George lives in the wall of a castle that is home to a beautiful princess. Through elaborate, expressive, watercolor illustrations, children can see that a big, red dragon (who happens to be afraid of mice) comes to the castle threatening the safety of a beautiful princess. Luckily, George can scare the dragon away and save the princess just by being himself. The princess is most grateful. To celebrate George's heroics and her safety, she prepares extra helpings of his favorite meal, cheese on toast. This charming tale is told through few words and gorgeous detailed pictures. In almost every double page spread the dragon appears in some manner for the reader to spot (a red pointy tail, a yellow menacing eye, a claw clutching the side of a mountain). At times the reader is the only one who sees the dragon who creeps menacingly through the pages unbeknownst to George and the princess, thus engaging the reader and heightening the tension of the plot. Reviewer: L. A. Gallaway
Kirkus Reviews
The mouse in the mountain has a very special skill. George the mouse actually lives in the wall of a castle that sits atop one majestic peak. As George struggles to open his tiny deckchair and light a fire to make tea, the reader can see in the distance a big orange dragon getting closer and closer. George is busy toasting his bread and cheese when the dragon makes his assault upon the castle. It looks as if the dragon will swallow the princess, who's obliviously watering her flowers. At this crucial moment, George's special skill, as well as the book's punch line, is revealed: "He could scare dragons!" The princess rewards George with a satisfying feast. Wormell's watercolor-and-colored-pencil illustrations, which spread over both pages with the large-font text running beneath, have the elegance and texture of paintings but simple compositions, appropriate for his target audience. Minimal text makes this a pitch-perfect yarn for the very young. (Picture book. 2-6)
