Fed up of being the villain in the same old story – captures princess, fights knight, gets beaten – the dragon decides he’ll be the hero for a change. But none of the other fairytale characters, from the gingerbread man to the three little pigs, will allow him a role in their stories. When he inadvertently ends up at the top of the beanstalk with Jack and the giant however, he finally gets the chance to save the day.
