    Here is another delicious mixture of fairyland fantasy and modern social realism. King Cole is un-merry because he has three daughters of marriageable age—and no prospective sons-in-law to take them off his hands. A professional hunter comes to rid the kingdom of a dragon, but the local environmentalist thinks dragons should be protected as an endangered species. There's a well with magic powers and a frog. An Old Hag is troubled with inflation—the price of lizard tongues has gone out of sight! There is humor in the villagers' reactions to all this. Learn More
