✭✭✭✭✩ Very funny
Junior review by Cora Dibdin
The Last of the Dragons is set in a kingdom where there’s a tradition that on a princess’s 16th birthday she gets married, but first she has to get tied to a rock and then a dragon comes and takes her away but a prince comes and saves her by killing the dragon. (You don’t see the dragons being killed.)
