AUTHOR MOTIVATION written by Briony Stewart, Kumiko and the Dragon started as an activity My uni tutor said remember a. time you were afraid when you were a child Well I didn t think of my own. childhood probably because it was a very safe and happy and normal one. When I got thinking I started imagining my grandmother s life because she. grew up in Japan during World War II Her name was Kumiko and when she. was ten years old she witnessed the atomic bomb go off in Hiroshima She. even played in the radioactive fallout that blew across her village As much as.

shortly afterwards One day she came across an American Soldier one of. many now occupying her village It was the first time she d ever seen any kind. of foreigner before He turned to her and said I eat little girls for breakfast. Well the tough guy was probably joking but he frightened my grandmother all. right She ran home terrified of being eaten, From this memory I started forming a story about a little girl called Kumiko who. is afraid of being eaten Only in my story she is afraid of a dragon As I wrote. the story it became really important to me that it sounded lyrical when read. aloud This was because my grandmother didn t get to complete much. schooling and couldn t read very well I wanted this story to be for her for that. little girl all those years ago who would have listened hungrily to this tale She. might have felt better after hearing it because maybe then she would have. discovered that like the Kumiko in my book she was far braver than she ever. This story was my chance to explore some of the things I love about my. grandmother s culture and to go on a grand and mysterious adventure like I. always dreamed of doing when I was a kid, STUDY NOTES.
