Rob Anybody held up a hand for silence and looked across at Jeannie, who had a crowd of little Feegles surrounding her. She was smiling at him, and his sons were staring at their father in silent astonishment. One day, Rob thought, they’ll be able to walk up to even the longest words and give them a good kicking. Not even commas and those tricksie semicolonses will stop them!

“Ah’m feelin’ guid about this readin’,” said Rob Anybody. “Bring it on!”
And he read Principles of Modern Accountancy all morning, but just to make it interesting, he put lots of dragons in it.
