When did it occur to you that one of the missing children was THE Alfred, Lord Tennyson who became a famous poet?


Phrynne | 605 comments I thought it must be - but then wasn't it George who was writing the poetry? I have already returned the book to the library so I can't look:)


Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 7660 comments Mod
George wrote the poetry in this story. Alfred was only three years old.


Phrynne | 605 comments So both Tennyson boys were poetic in the end:)


Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 694 comments I recognized the name immediately. Harris inserts some real life people here and there throughout the course of the series, though Lord Tennyson is by far the youngest.


Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 7660 comments Mod
Went right over my head until poetry was mentioned and I had an "aha" moment:)

This is the second or third book in this series where poetry is a factor in the story.


Charlene (charlenethestickler) | 1391 comments Because there was something before the story began, a quotation from Alfred, Lord Tennyson, I suspected right away that he was the younger brother. It was a surprise that his nine-year old older brother could write such adult poetry as was cited in our story.


Phrynne | 605 comments That's what I found strange. If Alfred had been older and had been writing those lines I would have understood it better.


Lauren (laurenjberman) | 2239 comments Also guessed from the start. I actually went to the Wikipedia to check if Gabrielle Tennyson was a real person but alas...


Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 7660 comments Mod
I did the same thing, Lauren:)

I picked up on the name Tennyson and was wondering if George was Alfred's first name or just a pet name...then when they said young brother Alfred I figured it was THE Tennyson.


Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 7660 comments Mod
I was certain you'd notice, Kris.


Joanna | 139 comments I caught the name but I wasn't sure if it was going to be the Alfred Tennyson or just someone with the same name.
