“THE BUMBLE DRAGON”
All at once he came to an open place with huge rocks in it, and right in the middle lay an enormous Dragon.
He was sound asleep and snoring in a low rumble, every now and then coming to a very loud snort, and mumbling afterward.
Billy took a good long look at him. His body looked like a gigantic lizard with a long snake’s tail. His large webbed feet had claws like an eagle. But his head! Oh! What a funny head he had. It looked like a cow’s head, only there were scales on it, and a lion’s mane, and dog’s ears. Billy was just beginning to wonder why he was called a Bumble Dragon when he saw the great transparent wings of a Bumble Bee folded over his back.
