Red smoke and a smell of sulphur were coming out from the cave. As Ben's curiosity was stronger than his fear, he decided to get in. But as soon as he entered the dark cave, a deep crater opened at his feet and he started falling headlong through a narrow underground passage. He felt like being into an endless tunnel.At the end of that long fall, surprised to be still alive, he saw two big green eyes staring at him in the darkness.Ben was terrified, and started trembling like a leaf. But a eassuring voice told him:“ Don’t be afraid, Ben. I am the Red Dragon you were looking for, but I want to be your friend. We are inside Etna. Once every hundred years a Dragon comes into existence in this powerful volcano, but he has to wait for a brave friend who helps him to find his destiny”.
The new day was coming.
The two friends saw a wonderful rainbow and decided to follow its direction…

Ben was faced with hail, sleet, snow, rain, and strong winds. He was beginning to wonder if he had made a wise choice. Daylight was fading fast, he was getting tired and dusk was about to set in. Suddenly, there was a loud noise and Ben's heart began to beat like a drum. He turned slowly to face the direction of the sound........

Unique Comenius Tale


The Red Dragon

It was the dawn of the Dragon’s Day. There was a rumble of distant thunder and smoke rose up and around the mountain. In the town below, a boy named Ben was looking out of his window and hoping that this year the dragon might awake.

Everyone in the town believed that a dragon lived high up on the mountain above them. He slept in a cave at the top of a winding path. One day, on Dragon’s Day, they believed that the dragon would awake, but nobody knew when that day would come.
Nobody knew who, or what the dragon was...
