When writing bedtime stories with The Eldest, we tend to focus on 100 per cent original ideas. That is how we arrived at stories about dinosaurs learning to use the bathroom after eating campfire hotdogs and a dog with very specifically, 27 ponytails.
That is not how The Youngest rolls. She knows what she likes and wants to hear more of what sh knows she likes every time we sit down with a book. Which is why it shouldn’t have come as a surprise (it did anyway) when she answered “Llama, Llama, Elsa pajama,” when asked what kind of bedtime story she’d like to write with me. After all, we read the Llama, Llama books 15 times a night and Elsa is, well, Elsa.
So, we put together a bit of fan fiction because who doesn’t love taking other people’s ideas and making them more not their idea?
