This is a fun adorable read for kids. I fondly recall reading these in much younger days and this was a happy revisit.

The story is a simple fantasy with plenty of fun elements. It is enchanting from beginning to end. I read this with my 6 year old niece, and she was enthralled! These are such lovely stories with rich characters and creative situations.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Karen Krause, who is delightful. She has a nice steady pace that moves with the story. I love her accent,
Read for Children's Literature class. Love Nesbit's writings.

Dragons infest the land and Effie and Harry set off to save their country with the help of St George.

Also, I don’t like the message the book has; the book refers to children killing the dragons for fun and the dragons eating the children. Even though this book is supposed to be looked at in a fiction/fantasy manner, some children m ...more
