Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932), English author of The Wind in the Willows (1908), included a fairy story, ‘The Reluctant Dragon’, in Dream Days (1898), his second collection of stories about childhood. To the children in this book and its predecessor, The Golden Age (1895), fairy tales are reality, so that when the narrator in ‘The Finding of the Princess’ wanders into the garden of a great house, he assumes that the couple he finds there are a fairy princess and her prince. Similarly, he and his sister follow dragon footprints in the snow, and then are told a story about a peaceable and friendly dragon who is with much difficulty persuaded into a mock fight with St George to satisfy public expectation.
