Narration on Dragon Boy, by Dick King-Smith
The story is about two dragons, one boy, and a wolf, although the wolf comes later in the story. The dragons’ names were Albertina and Montagu. One day, Montagu was out flying and he found a little boy, who was crying. When the boy had calmed down, Montagu brought the boy to his home (Montagu’s home). The boy, John, became part of the family.
They had lots of adventures. One day, John found a little (baby) wolf. John took the wolf home. And then the wolf became part of the family too.
Eventually, Albertina and Montagu had a little baby dragon. Her name was Lucky.
Everything was fine until the part where the three dragons went on vacation. That very evening, a pack of wolves came. John and his little wolf (who was rather big by now) defeated one of the wolves—the leader. And then after a while, they defeated all the others.
Lucky had the sensation that John and his wolf, Bart, were in danger. So she flew home. When she landed, the other wolves ran away. And that was all done. Albertina and Montagu, who were searching for Lucky, had by this time found an arrow that Lucky had made, which pointed west. The two dragons flew west. They found the other three at their home cave.
A few days later, Lucky found a friend named Gerald. Not much later, they married each other. (By that time, they were rather big.)
