Imagine a place where you can sit peacefully and read your book or listen to a bird singing. A place where the sea is full of magic and mermaids, and where a happy octopus makes sure that Mr Giraffe gets his special birthday cake. Imagine Mr Elephant is so happy and excited that he can blow a rainbow out of his trunk! Imagine that the beautiful red dragon doesn't breathe fire, but instead breathes stars into the night sky, stars which are polished every day without fail by pixies in the clouds (who also make sure that Mr Moon gets his nightly cup of milky tea). Imagine a sky full of sunshine, hot air balloons, flying books, and meadows full of cheeky smiling flowers. This is your happy place!
