The Princess and the Dragon
Once upon a time there was a king and a queen who lived in a golden castle with their beautiful daughter. One night an ugly ogre captured the beautiful princess and locked her up in his tall dark tower. The king and queen were very sad. They promised to give a bag of gold to the knight that rescued the princess. All the knights in the land wanted to rescue the princess. They rode to the tower as fast as they could. The ugly ogre roared with anger when he saw the knights. His roar was so scary that they rode away as fast as they could.
One day a friendly dragon was flying over the ogre’s tower, when he heard the princess cry for help. The dragon flew down to the tower, took a big fiery breath and blew the ogre far away over the mountains and into the ocean. The dragon rescued the princess from the tower and gently put her on his strong back. They flew high in the sky. They flew over the tower and the castle, over the mountains and caves, and out towards the deep blue ocean.
The dragon and the princess flew to the castle. The kind and queen were so happy to see the princess. They gave the dragon the bag of gold. They all lived happily ever after.
