Just reading this thread has brought a lump to the throat (hope it's not 
mumps)... Badger's Parting Gifts, Daddy, my Daddy, The Silver Sword, the dog 
being shot in I Am David, they're all guaranteed to set me off. I'm afraid my 
classes had to get used to it. The worst time for me was in assembly, reading 
Michael Foreman's War Game. Dunno why I decided to read it, I might have known 
what was going to happen in front of 200 children.
