Read from September 06 to 07, 2012

It is all very well for all of them to pretend that the whole of this story is my own invention: facts are facts, and you can’t explain them away.

Last line from the Enchanted Castle. An enchanting read, which reminded me of a cross between awesome 80s fantasy films and Night at the Museum. Loved how the statues, including the dinosaur came to life, wish it would happen in real life! It would be like Jurassic Park (just need jelly.) The edition I have was illustrated by Harold Robert Millar’s beautiful pen and ink drawings. Makes me want to stop thesis-ing and resume sketchbook-ing.

Bookguide Aha! I'd never noticed it was jelly, or at least, not remembered.
