1, I’ve finished the latest Harry Potter and it has inspired me to write a whole lot of stuff that wasn’t in the play. Also, I’d like to go to the play, should it ever make its way to the home of Hermione’s parents.


2, I hear good things about *Ghost Busters* from everyone whose opinion is important to me.

I assume this book was a Christmas publication, aimed at the Victorian middle class. It’s nicely illustrated and contains two almost painfully pious short stories. John Strange’s one is about two boys spending Christmas at school and comforting each other in the absence of their families. Mrs Molesworth’s is about some children who are led into a fib by naughty neighbours. Luckily they quickly repent.

I’ve heard of Mrs Molesworth before – perhaps in a Nancy Mitford novel? She certainly typifies the kind of bland, heavy on the improving message kind of children’s literature which we associate with the Victorians.
