And what about the bit where Mole can sense he is near his home, even though he has no idea exactly where he is?

Maybe you should be called "swallow" instead of nightjar, dear Carp! I've just thought of a lovely magical book that I remember reading to my boys when they were little, and later on to the children in my class at school. It's called "The Roundabout Horse" and it's by Rosemary Sutcliff. It's quite short, and it always made me want to cry at the end, it was so beautiful. You may have all gathered that lots of things make me emotional! :oops:

There is an advert for Pagan Children's books (in sets of 4) in the back of the Imbolc issue of Pagan Dawn. Forget the name as I am at work and the mag is at home!! Would like to order them for my niece and nephew as I am their 'fairy' godmother!

They cost £5 I think.

Oooh, I will check that out when I get home Sujee, thanks! I think I have the Imbolc edition knocking around somewhere.

Oh, I love 'Wind in the Willows'. I only read it for the first time a few years ago. I love the description of Pan too. I got upset when the baby otter (or was it another creature?) became lost and they had to go and look for him! :(
I love the chapter heading 'Piper at the gates of Dawn' too. It's great. I can understand why Pink Floyd 'borrowed' it!

iWitch, thanks for the podcast recommendation. I'll check it out, but I think that our poor computer might die under the strain :lol:

I saw that book called 'Room on a Broom' advertised in a book catalogue today, Beantighe. I might buy it, although at the moment Robin's favourite thing to do with books is chew them!

It would be wonderful if you can write a Pagan storybook for younger children, Kit!! :P Especially with the beautiful artwork of your sister!

The books I read to my Children were "Circle Round" from Starhawk (beautiful stories and pagan things to do/make with children) and "Celebrating the Great Mother" from Cait Johnson. I had to translate the stories in Dutch first but my children loved them!! Furthermore there are the books of Monica Furlong (they are translated in Dutch:P!!) and we do have some Dutch/Belgian writers who write pagan books for kids; Jan de Zutter and Lida Dijkstra, but these are not translated to English (yet!)

Blessings and love,

Sorcha :wink:

Sorcha, I'd forgotten all about Monica Furlong - read the Dutch translation of one of her books years ago and thought that it was very well written. If I remember rightly it was Heksenkind - probably translates as witchchild.

Monica Furlong's books are great indeed.
I recently got ABC Book of Shadows by Katie Olivares. I like it very much! It's a little cardboard book, with a pagan word for each letter of the alphabet. She wrote it for her 3-year old daughter.

B*B, Tink
