An extract from The Devil and his Grandmother: But the dragon was no other than the Devil. He gave them a small whip and said, “Whip with it and crack it, and then as much gold will spring up round about as you can wish for. Then you can live like great lords, keep horses, and drive your carriages, but when the seven years have come to an end, you are my property.” Then he put in front of them a book that they were all three forced to sign.
