This one is a lot of fun. The kids make do with only a small amount of vittles, for them at least. Was that a hedgehog in the stew - no problemo. All the fun of the fair and more.
Famous Five by Enid Blyton

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Lewis Carroll
“We are but older children, dear,
Who fret to find our bedtime near.”
Lewis Carroll

William Shakespeare
“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”
William Shakespeare, The Tempest

Kenneth Grahame
“All along the backwater,
Through the rushes tall,
Ducks are a-dabbling,
Up tails all!

Ducks' tails, drakes' tails,
Yellow feet a-quiver,
Yellow bills all out of sight
Busy in the river! ”
Kenneth Grahame

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The only way to have a friend is to be one.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
