In this book boys will find 28 tales of dragons and serpents drawn from the mists of time. Some are friendly dragons and provide wisdom and direction to the heroes of our stories, others are downright wicked, oozing malice and evil leaving the hero of the story no option but to destroy the spiteful, fire-breathing, beast. Our heroes always sally forth wilfully, but cautiously, engaging these ancient creatures to save a damsel in distress, or their families, from sure destruction and banishment to oblivion. ******* Herein you will find the tails (Oops Sorry, Freudian slip) tales of THE DELUDED DRAGON, THE GYPSY AND THE DRAGON, THE TWO PRINCES, THE DRAGON OF GHENT, THE MAGIC EGG, THE GREAT BATTLE, THE SWORD GRAM AND THE DRAGON FAFNIR and many, many more. These tales have been drawn from eighteen old and forgotten books and the thirty-three illustrations are by different artists bringing styles that are as different as the stories. ******* But why a book for boys you may ask? Some have said we are courting controversy? And we do agree. It seems that nowadays we are not allowed to use simple English adjectives to describe obvious situations. Why? Because the PC Police say so, and no-one dare disobey them Anyway, who put them in charge? This is in itself a well-disguised form of tyranny. This is the type of tyranny my father, and maybe your grandfather's, fought against in WWII. They fought for our right to go where we want, when we want and to have free speech. This is also the type of restrictive tyranny that the dragons in this book sought to impose on people, too scared to challenge them. Tyranny that existed until a hero stepped forward, challenged and defeated the dragon. It is our hope that the boys who read this book will grow up to be the kind of heroes who aren't afraid of challenging the status quo.
