It was time to feed the dragon a princess. But since no princess was available, the next best thing was to give him a child. All the children wrote their names on pieces of paper and put them in a hat. Then a name was pulled from the hat: Oscar! Oscar's mom wept bitterly—what mother wouldn't? But she should have known Oscar was far too clever to get eaten by an old dragon!
