The Fireman & The Dragon

by Connor, age 4

There once was a brave fireman named Connor. He had to put out a fire on a large building one day. He drove his fire engine to the building. There was a dog trapped in an upstairs window, so he used the ladder on the fire truck to climb up and save the dog. The dog was very happy and licked his face. The dog stayed by his side while he used the hose to spray water on the fire and put the fire out.

Everyone cheered when the fire went out, but that’s when they all noticed what had caused the fire. It was a huge green dragon! The dragon breathed fire on the building but the building was now too wet to catch fire again. It turned towards Connor the fireman and was about to breathe its fire on him, but Connor quickly used the hose and sprayed water in the dragon’s mouth.

The water put the fire from the dragon’s breath out and then the dragon started to shrink. It shrunk so much that it disappeared completely. Everyone cheered again. The people who owned the dog that Connor had rescued said that they could no longer keep him so they gave the little dog to Connor.

Connor had saved the day and got a new pet!
