Der Lindwurm und der Schmetterling (The Lindworm and the Butterfly)

oder: Der seltsame Tausch (or: The strange swap)

The dragon is supposed to be a lindworm? Never ever! But what can he do, even if in his anger he eats the professor who claims such things. The Cabbage White, however, suffers from another reason: He is supposed to be a butterfly! Sick with fury the dragon lies in bed, while the Cabbage White wants to retreat to the desert and become a hermit. But luckily there is a simply solution after all that makes both of them happy...
