Chris Wormell's beautiful panoramic illustrations only reinforce the fun he has with contrasts in George, the Dragon and the Princess - you see, George (the famed knight of lore) is a charming, little, timorous - and rather clumsy - mouse here.

George lives 'Far, far away over the high, high mountains, in an old castle wall, in a tiny, tiny hole', from which he creeps out with his tea tray and deckchair to take the air on the steep mountain slope outside the castle. He's pretty hopeless overall, except for one thing ... 'He could scare dragons!' (or at least the local one who's terrified of mice).

So little George says Boo, the fearful dragon veers off, and a small mouse is rewarded by a beautiful princess - in the appropriate manner. Kids of all ages will enjoy this lavishly illustrated picture book and cheer for both its small hero and his scaredydragon of an opponent.
