Because it was feeding us. Because it was true. The harpies make a bargain: if each soul has paid heed to the world and has a story to tell of it, and they tell it truly, they will be led through the darkness to the other side. He has that in common with the philosopher Iris Murdoch, another writer I love, who decreed that attention was the foundation stone of love. We must learn to tell stories, his books say, whether it comes naturally or not — because it is the best and sometimes the only way we have to exchange truth.

But I won. Children deserve books that are so too. In One Dog and His Boy , Hal, a child with everything he could wish for except love and care, releases five dogs from the cruel Easy Pets agency. On the way, each dog finds the place in which they can be themselves; the Pekingese Li-Chee, who once guarded the temples of monks, lying at the feet of a girl in a foster home; Francine the poodle, a natural comedian, performing in a travelling circus. Keep close, because the world will be cold, and frenetic and plastic, and only with each other will we make it.
I love Peter Pan f or being so entirely itself, not a diluted version of some other, adult thing. It offers up to us its own defiant logic, for Neverland is the place of the free experiment of the imagination. Barrie would argue that adults cannot go to Neverland. We too have been there; we can still hear the sound of the surf, though we shall land no more. I disagree: I think the books summon up inside us the riotous, Panian parts of ourselves.
