A long time ago in the little coastal city of Durban (South Africa), a little girl decided that she loved stories so much that she would never let them die, and would indeed help create new ones so that the world never ran out of stories. But when she told her father, he said that no-one could earn a good living (at first) as a Teller of Stories. He then gave her the best bit of advice she's ever gotten: 'You have to learn to earn your bread first.' She was very disheartened, but was determined to keep telling stories. So she studied and read, learning to earn her bread, travelled as much as her poor purse would allow, and all the while she listened to the stories whisper to her. First she wrote them down, then she would read them. Sometimes they would make her laugh and sometimes they would make her cry. There came a day when she had to dress them up and send them out into the world, hoping that they would lead good lives: sometimes making people laugh and sometimes making people cry; but always doing what stories do best – entertain, and reminding you that there's still a little magic out there.
