    "The next-to-smallest one, Dickon, he's got a beautiful burbling laugh, and he sat on my knee as meek as a church mouse even though we'd never been introduced before. He was patting at my waist and I truly think he knew that there was another small person inside there, it was as if he was saying 'all right, you, come out and play with me, rise and shine'."
