- It is On'y Tony's birthday and the most marvellous present actually came to live with him. He met with the dragon and through him did a great many very naughty things. but, as On'y Tony's mother says at the end, it is rather difficult to see how he could have helped doing them and the story ends happily with On'y Tony thinking quite cheerfully of school because Dragon and Crackers and Pickle and the wonderful present and probably old Brown will all be there too.
