AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'George Alexander is a beautiful children's picture book about the adventures of the young Prince as he discovers a cape in a toy store. Prince George is taken to a thousand places in his imagination as he plays in and around the Grand Castle; flying to the ancient oak trees of the Great Park, running up one hundred and twenty-two twisting stone stairs, past three hundred fireplaces and listening to four hundred and fifty ticking clocks. With a new cape he becomes a brave knight fighting the fierce fire breathing dragon until, his cape changes again and he becomes invisible and gets up to a little innocent mischief. But then one day, his capes are packed away, and his life changes. As the years pass, a grand announcement is made, and out comes a new magnificent cape - the Royal Robe. But will King George meet the fierce fire breathing dragon again? George Alexander will become a book of must haves; a collector's item in the households of those who love the Royal Family, and by those who simply love stories of Princes, adventures, the magic of capes, and childhood imagination.'
