Far, far away over the high, high mountains in an old castle wall, in a tiny, tiny hole there lives a little mouse called George. He's very small and rather timid and he can be a bit clumsy too. But when a huge and terrifying dragon attacks the castle, George springs into action! Because as fans of George and the Dragon know only too well, George has a very special talent ...With brilliant music and sound effects, this CD is a wonderful accompaniment to the story. Also featuring a track with a sound for every page-turn so younger readers can join in.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
