Summary

Summary

The Book of Dragons is a collection of children’s stories by English writer Edith Nesbit, who wrote under the name E. Nesbit in order to obscure her gender.

Comprising eight stories originally published in 1899 in The Strand magazine, The Book of Dragons is a work that explores the magic and wonder of mythical beasts for children and adults alike.

The dragons are hardly ever nice, but E. Nesbit’s children are undeterred. Always in favor of “valuing their opinions, honoring the realities of their inner lives, and giving them the freedom to explore and build worlds of their own,”* Edith Nesbit portrays her children to be great problem-solvers.

We hope you will enjoy the re-telling of these wonderful stories with accompanying musical interludes, to perhaps bring you to some enchanted, peaceful place where everything almost always turns out for the best.

Author Bio: Edith Nesbit

Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) lived in England and had dreamed of becoming a poet since she was fifteen years old. After her husband fell ill, it was up to her to support her small family. For the next nineteen years, she wrote novels, essays, articles, poems, and short stories; but it was not until 1899, when The Story of the Treasure Seekers was published, that she achieved great success. Her groundbreaking style of depicting realistic, believable children quickly gained a popularity that has lasted for more than a century.
