Dragon Tales

DragonImage

Created for a school in Exeter, this set of stories includes the "Muckle Meester Stoor Worm", a rollicking dragon-slaying adventure from Orkney, followed by the Chinese tale of how a fortune-bringing, water-bearing dragon came into being and a little local legend, to bring it all closer to home.

Useful links with Chinese New Year: Katy can expand this aspect if wanted, with stories of other significant Chinese animals.

For older listeners (Y4 plus), Katy also tells the legend of the great dragon Fafnir and the hero Sigurd, that inspired Tolkien and Wagner.
