The Wee Free Men

Små blå menn i kilt, draumar, Jolly Sailor-tobakk, ost, ei padde, ei dronning, terpentin, sauer, hekser, eventyr og dromer.

"'Once you learn about magic, I mean really learn about magic, learn everything you can learn about magic, then you've got the most important lesson still to learn,' said miss Tick.
'What's that?'
'Not to use it. (...) A witch always has a piece of string-'
'I always do have a piece of sting!' said Tiffany."

"The moan rolled around the clearing, as mournful as a month of mondays.
'...rrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaoooooooo...'
It sounded like some animal in terrible pain. But it was, in fact, Not-as-big-as-Medium-Sized-Jock-but-bigger-than-Wee-Jock-Jock, who was standing on a snowdrift with one hand pressed to his heart and the other outstretched very theatrically.
He was rolling his eyes too.
(...)
On the mound of snow, William clapped Not-as-big-as-Medium-Sized-Jock-but-bigger-than-Wee-Jock-Jock on the shoulder in a friendly way.
'That, lad,' he said proudly, 'was some of the worst poetry I have heard for a long time. It was offensive to the ear and a torrrture to the soul (...).'"

"'Well, spiders spin webs. Dromes spin dreams. It's easy in this place. The world you come from is nearly real. This place is nearly unreal, so it's almost a dream anywa'. And the dromw makes a dream for ye, wi' a trap in it. If ye eats anythin' in the dream, ye'll never wanta' leave it.'"

"This is a made-up world, Tiffany thought. Almost like a story. The trees don't have to be very detailed, because who looks ar trees in a story?"

"'Where's the frying pan? Thank you! Let's go!'"
