Danny the Dragon
For ages 3-7. Little Danny the Dragon disobeys Merlin the Magician and goes in the woods and gets lost. He meets a magical princess who tries to send him back home but her magic backfires and he gets turned into different animals, finally ending up as a big dragon. The princess decides to quit using her magic and walk Danny home herself. Once there, Danny has to confess to Merlin that he disobeyed and asks Merlin to change him back into a little dragon. Danny gets changed back and is sent to his room for a time-out. Lesson: listen to the grown-up because when they tell you not to do something it's usually for your own good.
