Today is St. George’s Day, patron saint of England. In celebration I bought Margaret Hodges and Trina Schart Hyman’s masterpiece St. George and the Dragon (Of course I tracked down a hardcover copy.)
I have fond memories of this book. I used to ask my dad to read it to me every night, until we finally progressed to The Restaraunt at the End of the Universe. Although it has been over a decade since I’ve seen it, every picture is still vivid in my mind. It left quite an impression on me. Thanks to this book, I never minded my dad calling me ‘George’.
It will be a fine addition to my collection of children’s books
