About the Book

Betrayed by his own father, the infant son of a lowly miller narrowly escapes death and is lovingly adopted by a faithful she-bear.  Raised on her nourishing milk, the boy becomes the strongest man in the land — and the only one brave enough to battle the kingdom’s bloodthirsty three-headed dragon.  Yet it is wit, not just courage and might, that the hero must employ to win his true desire: the delicate hand of a princess already betrothed to another.

Nothing could be more delicious than the marvelous quest that ensues — a tale of romantic valor, stolen glory, and sweet justice.  Caldecott Medalist Trina Schart Hyman has created a pictorial drama that is alive with good humor and splendid characters as forever memorable as Howard Pyle’s timeless story.
