THE FUNNY OLD DRAGON
The dragon went back to his chimney after that and James crept into bed. Every night they went out together, and soon they were very fond of one another indeed. The dragon was the kindest-hearted creature, very fond of a joke, and James did wish he could build him a large kennel and have him for a pet. But somehow he felt sure people wouldn't like it.
" I'm very happy now," the dragon told James. " I have good work to do—and I have a friend. That is all I want. Be sure to let me know, dear James, whenever any of your friends want their bonfires kept burning in the night, and you may be sure I will go and do what I can for them."
So if your Daddy can't get his bonfire to burn well, send me a card for James, and I'm sure he'll arrange things for you. And if you meet a boy who can breathe fire and smoke out of his mouth and nose, you'll know who he is—it will be James, the only boy in the kingdom who keeps a dragon up the chimney!
