Mundo and the Weather-Child

There's a beautiful rainbow in front of Table Mountain this morning - the other end is going over Lion's Rump and I could see it from the bedroom. I'm not sure whether or not it's going to rain again today, though.

Anyway, this is a wonderful book - another coming-of-age story, there seems to be almost nothing but those around - about a boy who moves to a new house with his family. As you can imagine, he doesn't like this and wants to go 'home'. This house has a big rambling garden, which Edmund does not like. Come winter, he can't hear anything, except the mysterious child in the garden that he makes friends with. This is a beautifully written whimsical book that you should all read.
