    After Granny's death, Elsa discovers that she is supposed to deliver a letter to a man who frightens her. Who were your heroes when you were a child? The large, scary man is a veteran who cannot live with the things he has seen in life. The whole intention in my heart when I wrote this book was to try to upend… traditional stereotypes. Maud and her husband Lennart, for example, are the nicest and second nicest persons in the world, respectively. I'm constantly marveling at what Brown has captured: a plainspun epic about a woman who would have likely fanned her hand and shushed the idea she was epic.

    Introduction Elsa is seven years old and different. A young woman goes on stage and removes her entire face, which is a mask, revealing herself to be the Grand High Witch herself. Are you not of more value than they? Do you think this influenced her parenting style with Elsa?

    The boy is training his pet mice in the hotel ballroom when the "Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children" show up for their annual meeting. Still, I was connected enough to feel like I needed to do something. I was certain the trip had been a terrible mistake. Do you think their opinions of her are justified?
