Quote of the Day

Marietjie (whose name was pronounced Mareeky) was in the charming little bow-windowed shop with her mother, Piet having gone to do some shopping. Penny and the Mallorys told them about the Talents Contest and the Fourpenny Fund - at least the Mallorys told them, Penny shuffled her feet and felt uncomfortable, as she always did now whenever these sickening talents were mentioned.

From FOURPENNY FAIR, Chapter 2, Fund-raising Activities.
