The Day the Dragon Disappeared

Special Mention of the Golden Paintbrush Jury 2020 (NL)

Long Wang was born in the Year of the Dragon. He slept in his cot with a dragon dummy, under a dragon blanket. And he sat on a dragon potty to do a dragon poo, and splashed in a dragon tub. He grew and grew and so did his love for dragons.
‘Dragons are lucky,’ Long Wang said.
He built a house in the shape of a dragon that attracted all the local children.
One sunny day a dragon was flying past. Long Wang’s house caught its eye.
That’s a friend, it thought, I’ll drop by!
