Behind the Story: "Emily's Very Own Bedtime Story"

This is the first story
I wrote, just to see if I could. I purposefully made it very silly, and in the story that Mr. Granger tells his daughter Emily, the dragon, Henry, is told that he needs braces. This part I put in especially for our son as he had just gotten back from the dentist that day and had his rubber bands put on for the first time. He was a little nervous about going to school the next day and wondered about the reaction he'd get from his schoolmates. This was a story I'd written just for him. He loved it and it gave me the confidence to write more stories. They came surprisingly easy, but, then again, I have the most inspiring muse a mom could ask for.
