Passing the Dragon
By Chris Pell, aged 42
Bert was frightened before he entered the cave, but when he saw the dragon he was terrified. The cave was dark and cold and it smelt horrible, Bert needed to get past the dragon, but how would he do it?
As he stood staring at the dragon, with its large scaly head resting on a rock, he suddenly remembered what his old teacher Leonard Postlethwaite had told him.
When a dragon’s fast asleep,
And past its head you need to creep,
Bend down small and touch your toes,
Then forward roll right past its nose.
Brilliant! What could go wrong?
