Guest Blogger - H. L. Burke
Hello, my name is H. L. Burke, and among my many titles, I am proud to call myself a Dragon Keeper. Like many wonderful things (and some magic rings) Theodore came to me on my birthday. He was a present from my 8-year-old daughter ... and while she may have thought I'd eventually tire of Theodore and she'd get a chance to play with him, I have kept him with me ever since.There are many things that Theodore loves. He is a well rounded dragon and his hobbies include cooking:
Theodore loves to have adventures and meet new friends.
He's traveled from Oregon to Southern California and met many interesting people. In some ways, he's a minor celebrity, but he doesn't let it go to his head ...
and of course, hoarding gold.
However, the thing that Theodore enjoys the most is reading. Theodore is a voracious reader, and frequently travels to libraries to see what is available. His favorite books, of course, involve dragons.
But he sees himself as a reading ambassador of sorts. He loves nothing more than seeing the next generation come to love a good story.
Because in spite of his outward appearance, Theodore really likes kids. He finds it sad when kids aren't allowed to flex their imaginations ... because without kids and their imaginations, Theodore would be just a chunk of plastic. He knows this. He knows the world needs creativity to fuel the magic of dragons.
Theodore even volunteers sometimes to read to children ...
Just because you're an adult, though, doesn't mean that Theodore doesn't love you. Theodore wants you to read, no matter your age. Keep those magical imagination muscles strong!
After all, you wouldn't want to disappoint the dragon, would you?
