What happens when the dragon won’t fight St. George? In this new retelling of the classic story, a young child befriends a kindly, poetry-loving dragon who wants to be friends – even though everyone in the village is terrified of the "horrible beast.” When the village hires St. George to slay the dragon, it’s up to the child to come up with a clever and creative plan to save the dragon and win the hearts of the town.
