Summary

When a dragon is discovered up on the Downs, the Boy is not in the least surprised. He's always known the cave there was a dragon cave, so it seems only right for a dragon to be living in it. The Boy decides to pay a visit to the cave, and he thinks he knows just what to expect. But this particular dragon is not a bit like the ones in fairy tales!

Critic reviews

"This dramatization of Grahame's story has wonderfully expressive characterizations to tickle young imaginations....The male narrator is warm and expressive as host of this appealing program." ( AudioFile)

Just OK

I found the reader so irritating that I struggled to get through it with my kids. The narrator made it SO difficult to judge the story itself, but I guess I would give the story a 3 and the reader a Negative 10 --- therefore, overall a 2. Sorry, author.
