Sara Hello my mother you write good books!
That book is the horse without a head. I lost it sorry. Can you dig it out the attic so i can try reading it again?

Elizabeth woo hoo, one of my favorite books has just been recommended by Philip Pullman as a top ten must read. Actually, he's mentioned several of my favorite books, but this is the most obscure:

Le Cheval Sans Tete


Elizabeth phew... the Doodlebugs book was rather exhausting. Now I have to finish all the others that I put aside to read this...

Estara Thanks for the friending request ^^.

Elizabeth thanks for those kind thoughts and happy new year to you too!
