“It was a dismally dark, gloomy kind of day, smothered in Scotch mist, and it was almost impossible to feel enthusiastic about doing anything at all…”
So it says at the start of the second chapter of Algy’s new book, The Magical Midwinter Star, and it was indeed exactly such a day in the West Highlands of Scotland, with very little light to be seen anywhere in the world, and certainly no sign of colour.
Fortunately, however, Algy had just published the Kindle version of his book, so he persuaded his assistant to download it to her iPad, and tucked himself up enthusiastically on an old armchair with some of his friends, to read it to them from the very beginning to the magically happy ending 🙂
