An hour later, their hunger sated by cheese and oatmeal cakes, the remaining cranberry tarts and some good Guosim cider, everybeast adjourned to the ford bank. Kubba pointed out the hornbeam tree, around the leeside of which hung a red tassled rope, its length going off, up amid the foliage.~ Lord Brocktree by Brian Jacques, pg. 151
I'm currently enjoying reading this book to my children at bedtime. It may take us a while to get through it but it seems fun so far and the animals make it seem interesting because their voices are enjoyable! Another plus is the tiny illustrations at the top of the chapter headings. So far, a likable read.
Be sure to look at the links above for instructions on how you can join in on the fun if you want.
