“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
-- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Reading this with my son for school, otherwise it would not be my first choice. I don't like sad books.
