Knights, Maidens and Dragons

Six medieval tales of virtue and valor drawn from 'The Little Colonel' series

Authored by Julia Duin
Illustrated by Diana Magnuson

In the days of chivalry, pure and faithful hearts were rewarded -- and they still are. These six enchanting stories set around the world will capture your heart with their wonder and wisdom. First created at the turn of the 20th century, these Victorian-era tales retold from the Little Colonel books have been rewritten for today's reader, retaining all the beauty of the originals. Purity before marriage, patience in adversity, faithfulness in small things, and sacrificial love and courage in despair are some of the virtues displayed in these new spiritual classics.

Knights, Maidens and Dragons is illustrated with more than a dozen full-color gorgeous artworks created by famous illustrator Diana Magnuson.
