    Miss recently 8 read The Lion in the Meadow to me tonight.

    The mother went on peeling the potatoes.

    Who knew such simple words could carry so much poignancy.

    Margaret Mahy was a fabulous writer and this post pays a wonderful tribute to her. We have lost a great deal but we have a magical legacy to treasure.

    The Librarian and the Robbers is a nice little story featuring a librarian heroine called Serena Laburnum.

    Memory is a pretty amazing young adult novel.

    Whereas the other night I lost it while reading Great Expectations (Pip leaves the village and never looks back, waaaaaaugh, and then keeps thinking he'll hop down from the coach at the next stop, or the next, or the next, but doesn't, WAAAAAAAUGH), and there was nowhere to hide!

    So hard to avoid total meltdown while reading! I think mine are getting used to my crying jags while reading out loud. They look at me as if I am a strange and curious specimen, and then hand me a tissue.
