My son read these stories to me. Neither of us really liked the first story - George and the Dragon. Initially, I thought it was going to be a retelling of St George and the Dragon, however it is a somewhat different story from Libya. It seems to try a little too hard to be modern and funny. It fails pretty much all levels. The other two stories, one from China and the other from England, have a little more charm about them and are not spoilt by the retelling. The Treetops myths books are broken down into manageable stories and chapters. However, they don't really encourage my son to read. There are better things for them to read at this level.
