Over at the wonderful Rattling Books site they are running a contest to find a caption for the Razorbill Cartoon by Jennifer Barrett which you see here.
Go to the site and learn how you "could win a yaffle of Rattling Books!" Yaffle?
And if you don't already know about Newfoundland's own Rattling Books you should have a good look round while you're there. They do all kinds of wonderful work - I'd particularly recommend the Mavis Gallant Montreal Stories.
I've just re-read "The Fenton Child" and was thinking about how Gallant's work fits into Steph Aulenback's category of stories "about childhood." Gallant has created some painfully knowing children.
