What is special about this version of the tale?
A lightly illustrated edition of a Dragon Slayer tale poses a question at the end pointed at the reader asking what they would do if they were in the Prince’s shoes. The illustrator chose to show the scenes when the Youth encounters the evil characters (i.e. the witch and dragon). Though this book is written in prose with more difficult language, the Preface says this book is written for children.
A brief summary of the plot that highlights any unique variations
With help from a good magician, an evil witch, and a magic ring, the Youth of the tale is able to kill the dragon and marry the princess. However, the evil witch soon seeks revenge for the wrong the Youth did to her. After being captured by the evil witch, the Youth is eventually rescued by the good magician. Then the Youth and the princess lived happily ever after as King and Queen.
