I have a few memories of where my love of reading origin story began...In The Hall Of The Dragon King is one of them. They were read to my by my parents when I was 8 years old. These, in fact, are the exact same books (pictured).
Strangely enough, I've never re-read them. I don't want to ruin the memory I have from so long ago with my now jaded adult eyes. 🤷♂️
"Fetch me that flower; the herb I shew'd thee once.
The juice of it on sleeping eye-lids laid
Will make or man or woman madly dote
Upon the next live creature that it sees."
