Later Drufus gets injured in a storm and lands on that boy's property. The boy still refuses to tell the king and get the reward. He hides the dragon and helps him heal. The family is poor because the land is too full of rocks and they can't get them out. Drufus over hears this and decides to help them. He clears out the rocks and helps plow the land. The family comes to love the dragon and they work together to bring prosperity to the family.
One day the king finds out about the dragon and goes to get him. The family comes up with a solution that is surprising and funny.
In violence ridden child literature, this at least has a moral of kindness and gratitude. I had bought this book for my own children when they were little. It was time to pass it on to friends with children who are young.
