Lizard Horses

by Leah R Cutter

Jelek lives in modern day Hungary. He has a club foot and walks with crutches. He spends as much time as he can tucked away in his bedroom loft, hiding from the world. He loves reading old myths and legends, like the stories of Hungarian wizards, how they only drink milk and always carry around weighty spell books.

He also knows the old wives tales about hens mating with lizards, and how they can be tricked into hatching lizards eggs instead of their own.

He thinks they're all just stories, tales from an earlier time.

But what if some myths are true?

Based on the Hungarian folk tale, "The Dragon Rider."
