"All stories come from the Story Bees, " she said. "They live far away, on the other side of the world, in a land where the flowers grow words instead of nectar. Once a year, usually around spring, they fly through all the countries until they find a very special person that they can trust. While that person mows their lawn or works in their garden, they sneak up behind them and whisper their favorite stories into their ear. They they fly back home and let that person share the wonderful stories with the rest of the world.
