My favourite stories

Hi lily, I love your stories so much. 🐸💖I am 11 nearly 12. I definitely believe that you are a frog because I am a selkie! ( which is pretty hard to believe) If you don’t know what that is, look it up ….. we are pretty rare creatures 🐚🪼🌊 I have trouble getting to sleep sometimes and the first thing I reach for is “tales from the lily pad”I love it 😊 Which part of the world do you live in? I live in Darwin Australia but right now I’m staying with my family in New South Wales 🦘🇦🇺🌏 Have fun on your lily pad! Love from Australia ! P.S can you make a story about a selkie please! I would love to hear about my kind in your stories!! 🌊 P.S ( again ) My human name is Ruby but my selkie name is Lorelie ( no one knows that ) And I am manly Australian Irish (where selkies originated ) French, German, and English
