Kassim and the Greedy Dragon


Once upon a time, there was a poor boy called Kassim who lived on the edge of a dark forest.  Early one frosty morning, he woke up and began the walk to school. Like she did, every day, his Mummy warned him, “Beware of the greedy dragon!”


So, he walked and he walked and he walked, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, until he came to a damp, dark cave.


The first time Kassim looked into the cave, he saw dark shadows shivering!


The second time Kassim looked into the cave, he heard a heavy footsteps shuffling!


The third time Kassim looked into the cave, he saw a pile of glittering jewels!


A moment later, Kassim crept into the darkness and took not one, not two but three huge, diamonds that glowed like fire light!


Unfortunately, something else was alive inside the cave!
Something very large.

Something very hungry.


It was the Greedy Dragon with teeth like daggers and claws like knives and jaws of the coldest steel! It shivered in the shadows, shuffled its wings and snorted its fiery breath.


What an awfully, greedy dragon it was! Kassim screamed! He ran and he ran and he ran, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, with the dragon shivering and shuffling along behind him, snorting its fiery breath …


Sooner rather than later, Kassim arrived home, just in the nick of time, with his coat tails singed behind him. However, in his small hand he held, not one, not two but three glittering stones, like giant seeds of greed!
