    Oh but what are those other 17 titles? We’re in a bit of a doldrums and reading the Great Brain. We were doing the High King, but then my daughter (11) deemed it too intense for bedtime, so we’re doing it in the afternoons (my son, 8, is very excited to finish it, she doesn’t want to deal with the main characters who die).

    But I need some ideas. There’s always more in the Swallows and Amazons series…
