Dragon Tales and Worse

What could be worse - the Romanian man who had 100 children and had to face up to a thieving Dragon.

Tales my mother told me

Chris is keen to share the stories he heard when he was much smaller. There’s the story of The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse, which even the Romans knew and Quackling from France, who was only a very small duck, but was still on his way to see the King. Oh and The Story that had no Ending!
