The Book of Beasts by E. Nesbit
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A collection of Nesbit stories, published in 1900, all of them about dragons. Almost all of the stories have a modern fantasy feel to them, and with some minor tinkering could be published today. There is still some Victoriana stuffed in some of the stories; I thought "Uncle James" felt more like Lewis Carroll. But all of them still have the trademark Nesbit drollness and point of view. Quite fun.
