I SHALL WRITE TO THE TIMES ABOUT THIS!

Maybe it’s the English-Boy upbringing, but there are some images and icons that stand above others as some sort of acknowledgment of hasn’t-he-done-well?-ishness.

Running out onto Wembley for the FA Cup final.
Playing the London Palladium.
Doing Hamlet at the Globe.
Appearing in The Times.

The Freaking TIMES.

You know, say, like this:

The Times Children’s Book of the Week: Magrit, by Lee Battersby.

The Times, people! The freaking TIMES!

Okay, the majority of the review is hidden by a paywall, but I think the bit you can read gives a fairly decent accounting of what they think of the book.

Did I mention the freaking TIMES? LIKES MY BOOK!

Ahem.

The Times.
