Farmer Giles of Ham
The Rise and Wonderful Adventures of Farmer Giles, Lord of Tame, Count of Worminghall, and King of the Little KingdomBook - 1999
Farmer Giles of Ham did not look like a hero. He was fat and red-bearded and enjoyed a slow, comfortable life. Then on day a rather deaf and short-sighted giant blundered on to his land. more by Luck than skill, Farmer Giles managed to scare him away. The peopleof the village cheered: Farmer Giles was a hero. His reputation spread far and wide across the kingdom. So it was natural that when the dragon Chrysophylax visited the area it was Farmer Giles who is expected to do battle with it.
