:)  I rather think some of Gwendolyn's apparitions would make nicely 
marketable toys.  Oh horrors.  There'd probably also be Awful's tea 
mixture, and (stop now if you're squeamish) packets of blood to make 
ghosts talk.  (Actually, on second thoughts, TotG seems one of the 
_least_ likely to make it to film!)

Don't feel a great need for the "cucina Capronese", but if someone 
managed the wonderful vegetarian dishes Anscher's lot made, I must 
confess I'd buy the cookbook.
