The Lovereading4Kids comment
A touching story of how a timid dragon saves the day when he defends the villagers against a cruel and heartless knight. George is such a kind and gentle creature that all the other dragons who are fearsome and mighty banish him from the mountains. George makes new friends and, when the time comes to lead the charge against the cruel knight who oppresses them, George leads the charge with some very satisfactory results.
This title is one of a number of picture book titles from new publisher Far Far Away Books. Launch titles include:

George and the Knight by Sue McMillan
An entertaining new take on the classic dragon myth. George isn’t an average dragon. In fact he’s so mild-mannered the rest of the colony disowns him until he can prove himself worthy.
When he meets Alric, the blacksmith’s son, it seems George has found his place, until Lord Halagad arrives and threatens the whole village and the dragons. Can George rise to the challenge and save his human and dragon friends?
