Illustrated by Robin Jacques

Not all dragons want to gobble up princesses. Of the dragons in these fourteen stories some are magnificent, some comic — but there is none that can't be outwitted. There is a fierce dragon who proves a coward before Stan Bolovan and his hundred merry children, and a kind dragon who is delighted when Pepito comes to stay. There are eight wicked black dragons who masquerade as doves, a mighty Chinese dragon who brings the rain, and many others.

Ruth Manning-Sanders has collected these tales from all over the world and tells them with the gaiety and grace that distinguished her earlier collections, A Book of Giants and A Book of Dwarfs. The illustrations by Robin Jacques fit right into the fairy-tale atmosphere, perfectly matching the stories in charm and humor.
