Quote of the Day

Judy, the Sparrow and the boys came hurrying back. Judy was soaked to the skin, and her teeth were chattering, as the Sparrow said, like castanets, because she had taken a false step in the darkness and fallen into the duck-pond. She stood on the stone floor of the back porch and dripped water, slime and duck weed.

From NORTHMEAD NUISANCE, Chapter 9, Half-term.
