To Carol, Barra, Ellouise, and Joe and everyone else telling the Dragon
Story. I am the original author of this original story which is inspired
by Chinese folklore. I first published it in The Story Bag; A National
Storytelling Newsletter and then reprinted it in my book Storytelling
Professionally; The Nuts and Bolts of a Working Performer. I am happy to
have people adapt and tell it but I would like you to say that I am the
author and that it is from my book Storytelling Professionally. I do not
ask any pay for this, other than to encourage you to buy my book so that
you can read the original version and repay me slightly.
