Adorned with astonishingly beautiful art from beloved children’s illustrator Trina Schart Hyman, here is an award-winning tale of bravery, perseverance, and peace.
This breathtakingly illustrated adaptation of a classic story is a must-have addition to any collection of folklore and fairy tales. Saint George and the Dragon dramatically retells the epic episode from Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene in which George, the Red Cross Knight, slays the dreadful dragon that has been terrorizing the countryside for years and brings joy to the land.
"[The illustrations] glitter with color and mesmerizing details."―Publisher's Weekly
