Description

What do you do when your new best buddy has been designated a scourge by the community and marked for imminent extermination? Just ask Kenny Rabbit. When the simple folks in the sleepy little village of Roundbrook catch wind that there's a dragon running loose in the countryside, they get the wrong idea and the stage is set for a fight to the death. So it's up to Kenny to give his neighbors front-row seats to one of the best-known battles in history-the legendary showdown between St. George and the dragon-without losing a friend in the fray.

Professional reviews

"Alan Cumming's delivery of this tale set in rural England brings a smile to the listener's face from the very beginning. Young Kenny, book loving and curious, has a newly discovered best friend and kindred spirit, a poetry-reading dragon named Grahame. Cumming gives the beast a magnificent deep bass voice reminiscent of Sir John Gielgud at his most formal. Unfortunately, Kenny's other best friend is George, bookstore owner and slayer of dragons. Unless a solution can be found, a terrible battle will take place in Kenny's meadow with a wide variety of villagers in full voice against the peaceful dragon. While recognizing DiTerlizzi's allusions to classic stories adds to the fun, it's not necessary for appreciating this tale, with its clever and satisfying ending. R.H.H.
