Quote of the Day

And so the Moochers entered Pendragon....

Not that Pendragon called them the Moochers then, of course: that came later. That first day they were only two new girls called Fiona Something-or-other and Katherine Morton, of whom Pendragon was taking rather a dim view. The Manor House Seniors were gathered in the Seniors' sitting-room discussing them. To begin with, it was against all precedent for any girl, far less two, to come to Pendragon at the advanced age of sixteen - and a week late at that; then, it was well known that they had come from one of those crank co-educational schools, and everybody knew what they, and their products, were like.

From THE MOOCHERS, Chapter 3, The Moochers Arrive.
