Joe had just moved into his new house. His usual neat black hair was messy. He had a friendly face, small ears and a little, flat nose. While his parents were unpacking, Joe got curious and decided to explore.
He tip-toed down the dusty cellar and found it was mostly bare except for something in the corner. A map!
Joe picked up the old tea-coloured map. There was a red arrow on the map that pointed to somewhere Joe hadn’t heard of or been to before … Magic Forest.
It looked suspiciously like the forest just outside his new house…
Joe crept out and ran to the forest outside.
A few minutes later, he reached an ordinary big oak tree … until he saw the secret door on its side.
Cautiously, he went through and saw a sign that said: Welcome to Magic Forest.
Joe saw rainbow flowers and fresh grass everywhere. There were trees that reached up to the sky and toadstool cottages on the tall grey mountains. He also thought he heard goats and bunnies talking!
Ahead he saw an enormous white and pale pink palace. He walked towards it and noticed the door was open. Inside he saw a throne room and two people dressed like a king and queen talking worriedly.
“Our princess is missing,” said the king with a huge sigh.
Suddenly, he saw Joe peeping, “You there! Who are you?” he asked suspiciously.
Joe jumped. “I came through the magic door,” he squeaked.
The king and queen looked at each other.
“Please help us!” they pleaded. “We’re desperate.”
“The princess has been taken by Dino the Dragon. He’s foul and nasty. He has been destroying our crops and attacking our villagers! Everyone despises him!”
“Of course,” said Joe. He thought of all the unpacking he had to do and decided going on a quest was way more fun.
The king gave him Pegasus the Flying Horse, to help him find Dino and his dragon castle.
It wasn’t long before they found the dark castle. “Dino, come out!” Joe shouted.
“Don’t hurt Dino!” cried a high-pitched voice.
“Princess?” asked Joe bewildered.
The princess appeared over the castle walls sitting on top of Dino! Dino had rough purple scales and wings as big as the sky!
“Dino is a good dragon!” the princess cried. “This is all just a big misunderstanding. Dino has been trying to be friends with people for years!”
“Just because he looks terrifying, everyone tries to attack him. When Dino kidnapped me, I thought he was horrible and would eat me, but I realized Dino is just lonely.”
“I know it was wrong, but people kept thinking I was scary without even getting to know me,” moaned Dino.
“Now we will fly back and tell everyone what a good dragon Dino really is,” declared the princess.
“We must apologise, Dino,” said the King sadly. “We were wrong to judge you only by your appearance and not your personality. Please forgive us and we will treat you with kindness.”
Then they turned to Joe. “Thanks, Joe, for rescuing the Princess and giving the kingdom a new friend. Please stay in our kingdom as long as you like.”
“You’re welcome,” said Joe, “but I still have some unpacking to do.” He waved goodbye and went home through the magic door.
