Quaint as it may seem, this is the 3rd Friday of April, so today's post is brought to you by the letter Q!
It turns out that even the Land of Oz had dragons and this particular one is named Quox.
The Oz Wikia has the following information about Quox.
"Although Quox is young, by dragon standards, he is very large. At the time of his encounter with Betsy Bobbin and company he was a mere three thousand fifty-five years old. His body is a lovely sky-blue color and thickly set with glittering silver scales, each as big as a serving tray. His head and face are not especially ugly for a dragon, but his eyes are so large that it takes a long time to wink. Whenever he smiles he shows sharp, terrible teeth. His nostrils are large and wide, and his breath smells of brimstone. His voice is a little gruff, but not unpleasant. An electric light is attached to the end of his tail."
Looks like Quox knows all about eggs being poison to Gnomes.
Only in Oz would a dragon have an electric light attached to the end of his tail. Go figure?
