Can a brave knight, a misunderstood dragon, and a clever boy find a way to win a fight without actually fighting? Enjoy Jim Weiss’ new unabridged audio performance of this beloved story by Kenneth Grahame (author of The Wind in the Willows) that includes a brand-new song, “The Waltz of the Dragon.”

Everyone is in a panic-a dragon has been discovered in a cave near town! The people call for that famous dragon-slaying knight, Saint George, to defeat the monstrous beast. But when one smart little boy actually meets the dragon, he finds a harmless, friendly creature who would rather write poems than burn villages. Can the boy find a way to make peace before the knight and the dragon have to fight?

Find out in this gentle humors classic, so expertly and beautifully read by master storyteller, Jim Weiss.
