I would expect nothing less from a knight gallant.

A brave Christian gent who slays dragons and asks

for nothing other than caring for others.

Isn't that great that we both put up dragon stories today? (I notice a spelling mistake you might want to address. It's in the paragraph above the "page break": "They processed" down the road, when I'm pretty sure you meant "proceeded" down the road.) A great story though. Loved it!

That is great.

Thank you, I erroneously thought processed was the past tense of process, as in to process down an aisle, but process is not correct and either you are part of the/a procession or you proceed. The past tense is processioned and, maybe, proceeded.

You managed to be true to the source material and yet fresh at the same time. Just enough archaism in the language to give the feel of an earlier time without making the story difficult to read.

So that's how all the churches were built and where the dragons went. It's all making sense now.

George and the Dragon is one my youngest's favorite stories, and I've considered writing my own version of it. However, I doubt I could do it better than this.

Which version of the story is his favourite? You should totally write one.

The version that he likes is in an old, illustrated book of fairy tales.
