Slightly like in “The Winter Knights”by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell, we have been gripped by what seemed like a never ending winter blizzard, but it’s over. The ice is melting, the snow’s already gone, and a thick, soupy blanket of fog has descended, swaddling the land like muslim. It’s really spooky, you can’t see anything further away than a few yards. School was back on yesterday, but was cancelled today. It’s on again tomorrow, like a yo-yo… they can’t make up their minds.
