KIRKUS REVIEW

An enchanting fairy tale, for all who liked The Sword in the Stone, but a book that should be introduced to youngsters by some discriminating adult. Fantasy and humor in a story of St. George, who has disposed of dragons for the time being, and who turns his attention to witches. Circe, still prating of Ulysses, is number one glamor girl of these daughters of darkness, and with Howling Harriet and Whimpering Willie, she cuts some fancy capers. There is plenty of magic in the plot -- and the grown-ups will get some fun out of the subtleties that the juniors may miss.
