A Real Princess

Dubravka Kolanovic

Dragon has been asleep for 100 years. He wakes to find that his magical kingdom has lost all the flowers, fields and space it had before. Instead, he finds skyscrapers, factory fumes and rubbish heaps.

He makes friends with a girl called Emma, who lives in the highest window of the tallest tower (everyone knows that’s where you find princesses) and he feels a little better when she buys him an ice cream.

Emma can tell how sad Dragon is to see that his beautiful Kingdom has deteriorated, so she promises to make the world a better place by the time he wakes from his next slumber.
