A divine young reader said that she can read a book per night. She is reading all of the Cat Warriors. When she tells me about Cat Warriors she leans forward and her face is intense with joy and concentration…it seems as though it is a complicated task for her to come away from her thoughts about these cats, about ThunderClan, RiverClan, Windclan and ShadowClan. But suddenly she turns to her mother with some more news and says that she chipped her front tooth at school today. Her mother is telling me something but she stops in mid-sentence upon hearing this news.
The child continues helpfully: but I have already been told off by dad.
Her mum said: did he? Well ok then.
