This is another one of those good, casual reads that you do actually need to devote a bit of focus to. Not really to follow the story itself, but more to keep track of the characters. The basic gist of The Forgotten Garden is that you're following th...more

Graham Chapman

Ray Bradbury

To hell with that," he said, "shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.”
Ray Bradbury
