Read full description of the books:
A really cute story.
Though, I have to wonder if a modern child is going to get all the humor that the original child audience was able to get. They'll still think it' funny, of course, but some of the humor is more specific to the era that it was written.
For instance, when the dragon says "You must tell him to go away at once, please. Say he can write if he likes, but I can't give him an interview. I'm not seeing anybody at present." the modern kids are going to get that the dragon is just going to refuse to see the knight, but unless they watch or read lots of late 20th century stories, they may not get the full intended image of a wealthy gentleman sending his butler downstairs to tell visitors that the lord of the house is not receiving visitors.
It's a fun story, regardless, but I think it's even more whimsical if you picture the dragon as a slightly disreputable gentleman in his library, just waiting to be invited to the elite's dinner parties.
