The Fable of the Bully Dragon
Facing Your Fears
From the Series Funny Bone Readers ™ — Dealing with Bullies
Ming and her family harvest rice at the base of a tall mountain. And if her family could sell the extra rice at market on the other side of the mountain, they could live comfortably. But her father says the dragon on the mountain steals the rice. Ming decides to try on her own to get past the bully dragon. So she packs up her ox and heads to the market. When the dragon tries to stop her, Ming outwits the bully in a clever way and makes it safely to market and back home with the money, proving that a boastful bully is no match for a smart girl.
