"An ordinary miracle", "Cinderella", "Shadow", "Kill the dragon" - favorite childhood movies based on plays by Eugene Schwartz, "chief storyteller" of our country. His works, created in the darkest years of Soviet history, only pretend to be fairy tales. When the external improbability Schwartz with amazing accuracy reveals the essence of the world order and human relations. The author is just like looking at people through a magnifying glass, hitting the reader with the richness of the action and of thought, conciseness of dialogue and penetrating precision of the estimates – and all this against the background of innocuous stories Andersen's fairy tales.
You will live the best works of Schwarz a hundred years? His tale is not just a political satire of a totalitarian regime. Schwartz wrote allegorically, without political bindings, which makes its author at all times.

Let's accept life as it is. Rain the rain, but there are wonders and amazing transformations, and comforting dreams.
The only way to get rid of dragons is to have one of my own.
This certificate is given to you that the spear is indeed in the repair of that signature and seal to certify. You will present it during the fight Mr. dragon, and all will end well.
Man of dead stone will make a statue and be proud then, if the operation succeeded. And come from living things make more living. That's the job!
The work will be small. Worse embroidery. Each of them will have to kill the dragon.
When you lose one of your friends, then the rest of the time forgive everything.
I spent three days chasing you to tell you I do not care.
