A brilliant British story and an excellent website all round - it's really bringing to life the work to be covered in the Myths and Legends section ( narrative 2 ) in the new Literacy Framework
Name: Conor 22nd November 2007
I thought this story was good, particularly the part about the princess being turned into a fire breathing dragon. And I also lked the thought that the evil sorceress got turned into a toad, which she deserved!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!
Name: Sarah 4th December 2007
It was brilliant how you actually managed to make it move.I know you can get the dragon moving in the thing but I never saw any of them in the list.
Name: Emma 5th December 2007
I think this story is very interesting and enchanted we did about this story in my literacy lesson today and I loved the story so much I decided to come and look at it now.I kind of belive it as it happened alot of years ago things might of changed in the story over the generations.This story is one of the best legends I have heard although I have heard another good one recently called "Bedd Gelert."
That story originates from a little village in wales it is really brilliant and I would highly recomend it infact I'd give it 10/10.

This story is attractive, funny and well-organised. I was worried about the girl when I realized the princess being turned into a fire breathing dragon. But thanks for the brave prince, he rescued his siser and also his country. I think it\'s great to hear so many perfect stories here, and I really appreciate that.

Name: BULL 11th March 2008
Beautiful story!!
It reminds me of my happy childhood!
Simple as it is,but it is very significant!
Name: YY 11th March 2008
This srory is old-fashioned.Just like other srories,the king rescued a beautiful princess.There is no new imagination.
Name: Magic King 11th March 2008
The picture combined with the story very well.And i love the theme that justice always beat evil at last.
Name: 005 11th March 2008
In great worrisome,we eventually reached the end,the evil was beaten!I really appreciated the love between the brother and the sister,which make a different! I wanna have such a brother when in trouble to rescue me!
What's more,I think the prince can be drawed more hansome~
Name: Dream 11th March 2008
It's a educational story.We worried about the princess at first.But we believe that justice will beat evil.And we are glad to see the prince is brave enough to kiss the ugly monster three times.This is the power of love.
Name: None 11th March 2008
To tell the truth, the story touched me deeply,I appreciated the priness and the price much, the love and courage between them was very strong,which helped them overcome many difficulties and gain the forever happiness.As for the evil queen, her jealousy not only ruined the peace of the kingdom but also birnged herself to a sadly after reading this story, we think kindness and loyal are the most important things in our life,and we should share the both and gain a longtime peace!
Name: Lily 11th March 2008
It is normal but strange. I think the princess should be helped by a prince who loves her .
However,the idea of the story is good.Justice will conquer the evil sooner or later,and the good will be in happiness eventually.
Name: Noname 11th March 2008
I think the story is a little simple!
Name: Mr Tang 11th March 2008
It's a traditional story which shows us a heart full of courage and bravery. The songs and the pictures need improving.
Name: Seven 11th March 2008
Perfect story.It's really attractive when I realized the princess being in trouble.Luckily,at the end of the story the family defeated the witch.
Name: Windchaser 11th March 2008
Reading this story,I felt quite astonished. Because I've never read such stories like this. The comparison between the ugly witch and the beautiful princess left a deep impression on me. I think we should all try our best to fight with the evil.
Name: Henry 11th March 2008
How could it happen?
Name: Yolanda 11th March 2008
I think this story is a little similar to Snowwhite.these two story are both about love.Love is the topic of the world forever,and I believe love will overcome any evil eventurally.
Name: Cherry 11th March 2008
Wonderful story!
But you find that

My favorite myth is about the one that was made for Denby in Wales. I went there with my school once and saw this huge castle called deny castle! A man told us about a myth called a man and a dragon. It was all about well as it tells you a man and a dragon! And the dragon is towered over Denby one day and is eating people one by one but then the man (I think his names Arthur) says he will fight for the dragon’s death and the people’s lives and then he breaks out his sword. Meanwhile in the wealthiest castle in Wales (Denby castle) the dragon lays its tummy bulging, feeling full up from all his victims he had devoured, he turned his head slowly to see the man standing proud with his sword high above his head. The creature jumps up to eat the man but as soon as he comes near the man takes one breath and forces the sword into the dragon’s neck (gruesome)! The dragon calls for help and falls to the floor, DEAD. The man cuts the dragons head of and brings it to the people of demy on his sword. He cries "Here is the head of the dragon that killed our town!” Everyone cheers and that’s how the picture of the dragon on the Welsh flag got there.

Thank you for reading my story,

Lovely site. Tiny quibble. The image of the castle looks far more like nearby Holy Island castle than Bamburgh which is a lot bigger (but of course would have been wooden at the time this tale is set).
Sorry for being a pedant. :-)

I love what you have done here. I have written this story into a rhyming poem (yes, a long one), and you might like to see this. I have, in fact, written approximately 1,300 poems for children, but if you Google: JOSIE'S POEMS3 and go to my story poems 3, you'll find it along with many other narrative poems. I hope you like them as much as I like yours. Josie
