Tales and Legends - IF


I always liked the way that children's book tales hide ideals, symbolisms and values behind an apparently silly story. The knight versus a Dragon is one of the greatest. Yourself fighting against an invincible adversary in order to get where you want (sometimes comes with a princess as bonus).
