Hey. I'm Natalie. And this is a dragon.

0:00:070:00:12

Dragons are very rare.

0:00:140:00:16

I'm going to read you a story about a little girl and her fiery friend.

0:00:170:00:22

It's called Jill and Dragon and it's by Lesley Barnes.

0:00:220:00:27

"Happily ever after", said the last page in Jill's huge book.

0:00:290:00:35

But Jill noticed that not everyone at the end of the story

0:00:350:00:39

looked so happy.

0:00:390:00:42

"Why are you sad, Dragon?" asked Jill.

0:00:420:00:45

"The King hates me," said Dragon,

0:00:460:00:49

his pathetic eyes looking up at her from the page.

0:00:490:00:52

"All I can do is burn, scorch, singe,

0:00:520:00:57

"char and barbecue everything in the kingdom."

0:00:570:01:01

"Don't worry, Dragon, you can come and live with me," exclaimed Jill.

0:01:020:01:08

DOG BARKS

0:01:080:01:09

"I'm going to teach you how to do all my favourite things,"

0:01:090:01:13

said Jill to Dragon.

0:01:130:01:15

Jill taught Dragon all about flower-arranging.

0:01:150:01:20

Jill taught Dragon about fashion.

0:01:230:01:26

Jill taught Dragon how to play the trumpet.

0:01:280:01:32

TRUMPET BLARES

0:01:320:01:34

And finally, Jill taught Dragon how to host a tea party.

0:01:340:01:39

CHATTER

0:01:390:01:41

Dragon looked sadder than ever.

0:01:430:01:46

"I don't belong anywhere.

0:01:460:01:49

"All I do is burn with fiery breath," he said.

0:01:490:01:54

Something at the tea table had caught Jill's eye

0:01:550:02:00

and she exclaimed, "I have an idea, Dragon."

0:02:000:02:03

The next morning, armed with a fork,

0:02:050:02:08

Jill jumped onto Dragon's back and they flew into the huge book.

0:02:080:02:13

Angry knights greeted Jill and Dragon on the page.

0:02:130:02:17

Jill, feeling brave, jumped off Dragon and shouted,

0:02:170:02:22

"Take us to the King!"

0:02:220:02:25

Jill pulled the piece of bread out of her pocket,

0:02:250:02:28

put it on the end of her fork and held it above her head.

0:02:280:02:32

Carefully, Dragon began to char the bread,

0:02:320:02:36

creating a striking,

0:02:360:02:40

if rather flattering, portrait of His Majesty.

0:02:400:02:43

The knights passed the toast portrait to the King.

0:02:450:02:50

The King took the toast from the knights, he nibbled a corner,

0:02:500:02:55

then a second corner and then a third.

0:02:550:02:58

After a long pause, his face lit up with a huge grin.

0:03:000:03:05

He proclaimed, "This toast is truly fit for a king."

0:03:050:03:09

TRUMPETS BLARE

0:03:090:03:13

But wait! Dragon was not finished yet.

0:03:130:03:17

Jill pulled out more slices of bread

0:03:170:03:20

and Dragon created even more intricate and wonderful designs.

0:03:200:03:24

As Dragon toasted bread, day turned into night.

0:03:240:03:29

The fire from Dragon's breath sent colourful sparks into the air,

0:03:290:03:34

which lit up the sky like fireworks.

0:03:340:03:36

The King bowed before Dragon

0:03:390:03:42

and said, "Dragon, you belong here.

0:03:420:03:46

"Come and live in my castle and make me toast."

0:03:460:03:51

"We all have a happy ending now," said Jill to her dog

0:03:510:03:56

as they read the last page in her book once more.

0:03:560:03:59

Now, wasn't it nice of Jill to make sure Dragon had a happy ending, too?

0:04:040:04:09

Would you like to eat a piece of toast made by a dragon?

0:04:090:04:13

Like this one!

0:04:130:04:15

It looks just like Jenson, doesn't it?

0:04:160:04:19

Hm! It's a big slice of toast.

0:04:190:04:23

Maybe I'll save that for my breakfast.

0:04:230:04:25

Join me again soon for another Bedtime Story.

0:04:280:04:32

But now it's time for sleep. Sweet dreams.
