Fairy tales abound with mysterious creatures, but I think my favorite one is the dragon. I love how the dragon is portrayed as either a villain, like with Saint George, or as a hero like in Pete’s Dragon.
Not too long ago, Build-A-Bear had Toothless that you could buy and I dragged my daughter over to get one. Turns out that I wanted one more than she did, but since I didn’t want to share we got two. True story. (If you haven’t seen How to Train Your Dragon, you need to. Probably my favorite story involving good dragons. I told my dogs that they were slacking in the pet department.)
I have found dragons or the use of their image all throughout history and stories. Even today, you will find that dragons have their own following in books, my favorite in the Romance genre is by Katie MacAlister.
What about you? What’s your favorite dragon story?
