Book Excerpt for the Day

    “I want you to take a team of men with rifles and search the whole forest,” she said.

    “Um, right.”  Dieter sounded confused.  “Sorry, did you say rifles?”

    “Rifles.  Rhymes with ‘stifles’.  I want you to search every square centimetre, and if you find a unicorn, or a white horse with a horn sticking out of its head, I want it shot and brought to me immediately.  You got that?”

    “Sure,” Dieter replied, making a note.  “Unicorns.  What if we don’t find any?”

    “Keep looking till you do.”
