About the Story

Reluctant Dragon, The Kenneth Grahame was born in Edinburg, Scotland, and later lived in the Village of Cookham, which is thought to have served as the inspiration for the settings of many of his stories. “The Reluctant Dragon” is one of Grahame’s most famous children’s stories and was published in 1898 as a chapter in Grahame’s book Dream Days. In 1908, Grahame’s renowned children’s novel The Wind in the Willows was published. Grahame died at the age of 73 and was buried in Holywell Cemetery in Oxford, England. His epitaph reads, “To the beautiful memory of Kenneth Grahame, husband of Elspeth and father of Alastair, who passed the river on the 6th of July, 1932, leaving childhood and literature through him the more blest for all time.”
