"Davey saw Violet climbing down to make the tea, and decided that he'd better get Grandpa off the ceiling. After all, they had company."

 

 

"If he had his way, he would lounge in his den for at least another hour, listening to the soft click-clack of his cedar-berry bead curtain hanging in the breeze."
