RUPERT AND THE DRAGON PILLS No 8
Pong-Ping takes out one of the pills and puts it in Rupert’s hand. “These are dragon pills,” he says. “Dragons will do anything for them. Give this one to my pet and he will be your friend.” Rupert looks doubtful, but the fierce little creature sits up and stops blowing smoke as he gently takes the pill. “How extraordinary!” sighs Rupert, in relief. Then they go out, and the little dragon runs rapidly over the grass. “He’s better than any watchdog,” says PongPing proudly.
Then out into the grounds they go, And watch the pet run to and fro.
Says Pong-Ping, “Give him one of these, A pill will make him feel at ease.”
