“With the point of his knife he made two round eyes, a three-cornered nose, and a mouth shaped like a new moon. The face, when completed, could not have been considered strictly beautiful; but it wore a smile so big and broad, and was so Jolly in expression, that even Tip laughed as he looked admiringly at his work.” 🎃

I mostly read this because it is the prequel to The Girl the Sea Gave Back, which I‘ve just won in a giveaway. I probably wouldn‘t have gotten through it if it weren‘t for the audiobook: the writing is slow, overly descriptive, tending towards navel gazing. I did like the story, the moral of it, and the characters. Unfortunately the characters, despite pretty good progression, were not well fleshed-out. It wasn‘t bad, but I‘m glad to be moving on.
My well-worn copy of GofF. First thought-why does Harry look so happy on the cover?
A funny quote I had forgotten: “It is Uranus, my dear, “ said Professor Trelawney, peering down at the chart. “Can I have a look at Uranus, too, Lavender?” Said Ron.
Another quote: “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” -Dumbledore
