"Dear Susan, If you come to Constantine Bay this summer I'm afraid you will not find me. I have gone to visit an old friend in the Scilly Isles. I seem to remember that you like good stories, so I have left you, in my cave, a very special book..." So began the letter which Susan found inside a corked bottle after she had spent the first few days of her holiday searching in vain for her friend, R. Dragon. She discovered that the Dragon's book was indeed a very special one - the record of his life and adventures at the Court of King Arthur. She learned how the Dragon had served the King faithfully for a year in the kitchens at Camelot, and had then been granted his one wish - to be given a chance to prove that he, too, was as brave and chivalrous as Arthur's knights.
The book has bright green boards and glorious gilt titles on the spine. Although it is an ex-library book, with slight bumps to spine ends, text block edges faintly marked with library stamps, the dust jacket lightly creased on spine ends and corners and price clipped, light, barely perceptible indentation marks present on the glossy surface of the dust jacket, overall the text block is tight, all text clear and crisp and there are many delightful b/w illustrations by Constance Marshall, the vividly colourful dust jacket illustration is by Barry Wilkinson.
A charming tale of a decidedly charming dragon, in very good condition.
