The Song of the Magical Bird
Once upon a time, in a land where the sun always shone, lived a little girl. She swam in the warm blue sea and loved stories, “let’s pretend” games and all the colours of nature. When she grew up she loved to make chairs especially for children. Children love “let’s pretend” games and most of all stories. So for everything she made, she wrote a story book to go with it: stories about elephants, zebras, ponies and dogs. She loved stories so much, she could not stop telling them to people. She wrote stories for her own as well as other people's websites. She told stories to children in Dubai, South Africa, Kenya and England. Now she tells stories to grownups at theatres, book shops and even once on a long distance train in Canada. Now she writes stories and tells other people’s stories, because stories are meant to be shared. To her, telling stories is just like playing “let’s pretend”, and after all – she never really grew up.
