    They’d built a series of strange objects using Tunneller scraps. Some you climbed on, some you crawled under, some you jumped over and some you hung on. Dozens of pups were playing on them, having the time of their lives. At first it made no sense to the St. John’s Wood mice, and even after staring at it, they couldn’t quite understand. Somehow, the Marylebone mice were copying ideas from the Tunnellers – their pictures and their words. It looked positively weird.

Book dedications have always intrigued me, but so far I’ve never seen a website dedication. Perhaps this is the first. As it says in The Last Garden, “So special, so loved, so missed.” This little dedication is For Ana.
