    Literature 
"She wished she'd spent more time with younglings. Master Yoda always seemed so good at talking to them. She tried to imagine what he would say and then found herself fighting off giggles when she remembered Master Yoda's unique way of talking. Maybe that was why the younglings had liked him so much."

Thanks for saving me.

This door is jammed shut.
Only the power of gems
Can hope to move it.

You’ve made a wise choice...
It will mean more eggs for you...
And more gems for me...
Best of all, Spyro...
I can stop speaking Haiku.
What a sweet relief!

You are brave, dragon.
Much braver than I, by far.
Here, take this dumb egg.
Shiny the Firefly, Spyro: Year of the Dragon

The tea lamps are lit!
Ow I’ll tell you the secret.
Of what’s in this house.
A creepy wizard
Lives inside, but hates the light.
He has awoken.
He swore to destroy
Whoever lights the tea lamps
Better you than me.

The springtime trees are fragrant.
I’m off to kick butt.

Kangaroo can help!
You can clear the path for us!
Will Sheila help us?
Basho the Firefly, Spyro: Year of the Dragon

Yes! It’s bombing time!
Here I come my little eggs
To free you at last!
Basho the Firefly, Spyro: Year of the Dragon

Ow…
I went boom again…
Big rocks can be kicked, they say,
Mushrooms must be stomped.
Basho the Firefly, Spyro: Year of the Dragon

We will be waiting.
When you return to help us.
We shall bomb again!
Basho the Firefly, Spyro: Year of the Dragon

One egg cage remains.
Will you know help my brother
To free the last egg?
Basho the Firefly, Spyro: Year of the Dragon

If you clear my path
I can blow up the egg-cage.
Poor, poor captive egg.

The eggs are all free!
Two dragons are born today!
Sheila’s my hero!
