The Dragon and the Lizard; a special family story, now for everyone to treasure
Family stories are often passed down through generations, they tend to evolve and take on a life of their own as they are told by each family member. This is the wonderful thing about these stories, that they can change and take on more meaning for the story teller and audience.
Kristyn, also know as the fabulous MummyK, has taken her treasured family story called “The Dragon and the Lizard” and has published it so everyone can share in this delightful tale.
A story originally told by her Mother and which Kristyn now tells to her daughter, the story promotes the importance of self-worth, being valued and everyone is important. The story is perfect for both boys and girls as it is about a huge fire-breathing dragon, and I have lost count of how many times Mini Me has played Dragon games with the kids next door or pretended to be a Dragon with a towel wrapped around her.
The Dragon is terrorising the Kingdom and the King is losing hope that someone will find a way to defeat the Dragon. A humble Farmer, named Marcus, who is friends with the King and the Princess, wants to show he knows how to save the Kingdom from the Dragon but since he is viewed as only a Farmer and not a Warrior, he finds it difficult to get people to believe him. He has to believe in himself and know that his plan will work and show everyone that he is as smart and as important as anyone else. Can Marcus, the humble Farmer defeat the Dragon with his plan? Will the Kingdom be saved? Will love blossom between him and the Princess? Is the Dragon, really a Dragon or something else altogether?…….
Well, I don’t want to spoil the story, that would ruin it for you!
Mini Me really enjoyed the story about the Dragon and the Lizard and by far her favourite part were the pictures of the Dragon. There are plenty of pictures to complement the story and engage readers of all levels. Although the story may have been a bit long for Mini Me at the moment, as she has the typical 2 1/2 year old attention span, we found we could shorten it in some parts so she could still enjoy the story and still get to the next picture quickly. It is a story that we will be reading regularly I think, since she love Dragons and as she gets older and her attention spans grows we can add in the parts that we have left out.
