    Summary

    Achren’s voice rose sharply. “Eilonwy! What did I just say?”

    Eilonwy hurriedly glanced down at the yellowed page. The letters seemed to twist and writhe under her gaze, like the worms she sometimes spotted in the courtyard after a storm. There was something unpleasant about them—the letters, not the worms. Well, the worms too, but that was hardly their fault. If Eilonwy didn’t have arms and legs, she’d have to writhe along too, and she'd hate it if people held it against her.

    Summary

    In the end, it was easy: a target, a fear of loss
    Hardwired in, a yearning strong enough to brave space,
    And a machine was taught (learned) to feel.

    Summary

    It's grand to be an Englishman in 1910
    King Edward's on the throne;
    It's the age of men
    [...]
    A British nanny must be a gen'ral!
    The future empire lies within her hands
    And so the person that we need to mold the breed
    Is a nanny who can give commands!

    -- from "The Life I Lead" (Lyrics: Robert B. Sherman)
