Sniff is a lonely dragon always getting in trouble through no fault of his own. Whilst out flying far too low he accidentally comes across, Livvy Lou, another lonely youngster and they quickly become friends.
This is how they met and the first of their many adventures.
There is plenty more to come from Sniff and his friends. Please read on and let me know if you want more.

Sniff’s a lonely dragon, he’s tragic and he’s sad

He tries to be so very good but ends up being bad

He can’t control his fiery tongue, often flying low

Always late for dragon school, he sometimes doesn’t go!


Today he met a little girl, she seemed so very shy

Whilst flying low he sniffed real loud and somehow caught her eye

‘My name is Livvy Lou’ she said, ’How come we’ve never met?’

‘I live nearby, just down the road, why is it always wet?’


‘Pleased to meet you, my name is Sniff’

‘I prefer it dry’

‘It helps the flames come out you see’

‘That’s why I fly so high’


‘Why so it does’, said Livvy Lou

‘Do you want to be my pet?’

‘I’m a dragon’, said young Sniff to her

‘Blow flames, smell bad, and yet’


‘You are real cute’

‘And seem so kind’

‘Friends it is’

‘You bet’


‘My other friends aren’t kind to me’

‘They say I make things up’

‘Now I’ve met a dragon’

‘I can’t believe my luck’


‘Let’s go, I’ll sort them out’, said Sniff

‘I’ll puff and blow some flames’

‘No need’, said Livvy, ‘Don’t be cruel’

‘Let’s just play some games’


Said the dragon, with a great big sigh

‘I only fly, and it’s a chore’

‘That will do’, said Livvy Lou

‘I’ve never flown before’


‘Jump on, take hold, try not to fall’

‘I hope I’m not a bore’

‘My usual mode is bus or cab’

‘They collect me from my door’


Off they flew in search of fun

They found a little park

They slid, they swung, they laughed a lot

And then it got real dark


‘I have to go’, said Livvy Lou

‘But hope to meet again’

‘Same time, same place next week’, said Sniff

‘Unless it starts to rain’


When Livvy Lou told all her friends

About the other day

They laughed, they joked, they shook their heads

They cried, ‘Never, No way!’


Livvy looked up to the sky, smiled and said, ‘Oh dear’

‘You lot better run and hide’


‘Because he’s here’
