Custard the DRAGON

ABC Wednesday
February 3rd, 2016
The letter is D for DRAGON

Dragons are not as prolific as they once were.
These days they are inclined to live in little white houses, 
and here is the Tale of one such Dragon, named Custard, 
written by Ogden Nash and performed by Dennis Massa

If you are not familiar with Custard quite probably your children are,
or your grandchildren, or your great-grandchildren.
His tale can be found here http://glenavalon.com/custard.html

at ABC Wednesday, as well as their DETERMINED helpers.

I'm sorry that Custard was never in my bookcase.
Love the video and that guitar work is terrific.

I've never met Custard, but I do remember Puff the Magic Dragon!

A fun choice for the letter D. I have never heard of Custard but I do not have grandchildren yet so maybe that is why. I bought some dragons to decorate for Chinese New Year...

I'm so afraid!

That's a pity I have never heard or seen this in Belgium.

I'm not familiar with Custard the Dragon, but one of my favourite childhood books was The Funny Thing by Wanda Gag. It was about a dragon that ate little girls' dolls and how they tempted the dragon away with tasty treats called jum-jills. To this day I call a tasty treat a jum-jill. - Margy

Never heard of That dragon but the name reminds me of custard pudding!

That was fun Hildred! I had never heard of Custard either; I'm sad that even my great-grands might be a little too old to appreciate him as much as I do. (Boys, daddy keeps them busy and interested in sports -- which is good up to a point, but .... ). Anyway, I loved it.
