The little Prince and Princess are picking buttercups in the cherry orhard when suddenly a towering monster belching fire and flame leaps upon them. "My dragon," says the Princess.

In this scene and in other equally joyful and amusing situations, Sesyle Joslin, whose books have endeared her to the very young, clearly establishes that saying "Mine!" is not nearly so much fun as saying "Ours!"
