Synopsis

George, the Dragon and the Princess by Christopher Wormell

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.
