Excerpt

Aren't you cross with them?...

TYLTYL What for?...

THE FAIRY For eating all the cakes.... I think it's very wrong of them not to give you some....

TYLTYL Not at all; they're rich.... I say, isn't it beautiful over there?...

THE FAIRY It's no more beautiful there than here.

TYLTYL Ugh!... It's darker here and smaller and there are no cakes....

THE FAIRY It's exactly the same, only you can't see....

TYLTYL Yes, I can; and I have very good eyes. I can see the time on the church clock and daddy can't...

THE FAIRY (suddenly angry) I tell you that you can't see!... How do you see me?... What do I look like?... (An awkward silence from TYLTYL.) Well, answer me, will you? I want to know if you can see!... Am I pretty or ugly?... (The silence grows more and more uncomfortable.) Won't you answer?... Am I young or old?... Are my cheeks pink or yellow?... Perhaps you'll say I have a hump?...

TYLTYL (in a conciliatory tone)

Author of the Day

RD Vincent
RD Vincent likes to take readers to a special place to call your own, a place where time stands still, a fabled town called Donbridge. Vincent's Donbridge series is a collection of stories and folk tales, some of which he heard from his own grandmother. As our author of the day, Vincent talks about the latest bundle from this series, tells us more about the inspiration behind the stories and reveals why he also included recipes in the books.
