Publishers Ban Fire-breathing Dragon

A leading children's author was told to drop a fire-breathing dragon shown in a new book - because the publishers feared they could be sued under health and safety regulations.

Not quite sure what they're worried about.

I enjoyed watching the smoke rise from Disney characters when I was young, like Cruella DeVil and that caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland. Anybody remember that old Mickey Mouse Jack in the Beanstalk cartoon in which the giant stuffs Mickey into a home-made cigar and smokes him?
