Cosy reading on a grey day.
We've really been enjoying this book.
It is so magical, and so, so beautifully written. A really compelling story, so unlike many modern story books for children today. None of us wanted to put this lovely old book back up on the shelf.
Afterward Emmy starting studying chivalry, the troubadours and medieval lore.
I still wonder with joy at how natural learning can be, how fluid and how deep and human.
Slowing down on grey days with warm drinks in hand a bed full of pillows, candle light and an old story book....
