Grahame, Kenneth, and Ernest H. Shepard. The Reluctant Dragon. New York: Holiday House, 2013.
The story is about a small village where a shepherd boy lives and his encounter and friendship with a dragon who lived in a cave nearby.
The wording of the book and the style is very reminiscent of the time that it took place in, which kept the story interesting and gave a more authentic feel.
The drawings were black and white and were very simple in nature. They gave the impression that they were also drawn from the time in which the story took place.
The book was very interesting. I would recommend this to my other students. This book would be best for ages 8-12. The book would be best for those interested in fantasy and for those with interests in the medieval ages.
