THE FUNNY OLD DRAGON
Puff !" went the dragon, blowing out smoke and flames. The bonfire flared up.
and flames. The bonfire flared up at once and the rubbish began to burn merrily. The dragon laughed and so did James. This was fun!
" Where's the next bonfire? " asked the dragon. " I don't feel useless and out of date any more, James. I am enjoying myself! "
Well, the old dragon got everybody's bonfire burning very well indeed, and James knew that all the gardeners and Daddies would be simply delighted the next day. And he would be the only one that knew the secret! James felt rather grand.
" Teach me how to breathe fire and smoke, please, dragon," he said. " You promised you would." So the dragon gave him his first lesson. My goodness, it was most exciting, I can tell you! James was able to breathe out just a little bit of blue smoke at the end of his first lesson.
" Hoo! " said James, " won't I make the boys stare at school! My word, no one will dare to be rude to me or punch me when I can breathe out fire and smoke! I shall have fun! "
