And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.

as long and sharp as yours.

that lord of Castamere,

with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

I ask the indulgence of the children who may read this book for dedicating it to a grown-up. I have a serious reason: he is the best friend I have in the world. I have another reason: this grown-up understands everything, even books about children. I have a third reason: he lives in France where he is hungry and cold. He needs cheering up. If all these reasons are not enough, I will dedicate the book to the child from whom this grown-up grew. All grown-ups were once children– although few of them remember it. And so I correct my dedication:
