Far away in the high mountains, in a dark cave, lives a mighty dragon. He is so big and strong he can knock down a castle wall with one flick of his tail, and burn down a whole forest with one fiery breath. But this fearsome dragon has a terrible secret - he's scared of mice! So when George, a tiny mouse, moves into the cave next door, it seems as though the dragon has finally met his match. This enchanting tale of a terrifying dragon and a brave little mouse will amuse and delight young readers. The illustrations show George as an adorable creature, who deserves to become a firm favourite with children everywhere. Suitable for 3-5 year olds (Kirkus UK)
