Name the Dragon!

A Dragon….

Has moved into the Children’s Section of the library !!!   Don’t be alarmed, he’s very friendly!   He loves to read juvenile fiction after the library closes & everyone has gone home.   His lineage can be traced back to a dragon named Puff who lived by the sea & loved frolicking.   He’s very happy in his new home but one thing does make him a tiny bit sad: He doesn’t have a name!  

Can you think of a name for our new dragon???   If so, please fill out a slip & put it in the dragon naming  box on the desk in the children’s section or email Dawn (dawn null@null woodstock .  The Dragon will be so happy!!!!!!!!
