THE DRAGON’S BIRTHDAY
A long time ago in a peaceful land far, far away, there once lived a dragon called Rufus.
Rufus was the only dragon to exist in those days. He was the only descendent of the last dragons on the planet, and the royal family considered him to be the guardian of the kingdom.
Watch this children’s story and connect English subtitles:
Rufus was about to turn one year old, and the king and queen were going to organise a birthday party for him. On the morning of his birthday, Rufus came down for breakfast from his tower as he did every day. But today something was wrong – there was no breakfast waiting for him!
Annoyed, he went to the palace living room and flung open the doors. Thinking no one was there, he burst into tears, opened his mouth and filled the room with flames.
To his surprise, he opened his eyes to see the whole room full of people wanting to celebrate his birthday. Luckily, Rufus didn’t set anyone on fire, and the only things that got burnt were the candles on the cake.
As they celebrated Rufus the dragon’s birthday, he learned that there was no need to be annoyed because they hadn’t prepared his breakfast – for there are much more important things in life, like being happy and smiling all day long.
