Dragon’s New Toy Story Excerpt:

Enjoying the soft floral fragrance, Dragon held the blanket up to its face and nuzzled it.  Feeling calm, happy, and secure Dragon hugged the blanket once again. Dragon realized someone loved this bright yellow blanket and was probably missing it.
Slowly, Dragon walked along.  The trees seemed to be pointing Dragon down a particular path. Slowly, and deliberately stepping to avoid the tree roots jutting out from the ground, Dragon walked along the twisting and turning path.  Up ahead, Dragon noticed a sunbeam had weaved through the tree canopy, lighting up the forest floor.  Reaching the sunbeam, Dragon stopped, closed its eyes, and enjoyed the warmth of the light on its skin.
