Interesting question, Gili! Regarding the plait/pigtail thing, I am fairly
sure the original cover of the first edition of Sabriel had her wearing a
long plait down her back‹I can check when I get home. Also, I know Garth,
and he's a lovely man and I bet would be more than happy to answer such
questions. He's not remotely precious! As for the cab thing, I suspect it
would have been a motorcar‹one of the things that distinguishes the two
worlds in Sabriel, but I am more than willing to be challenged on that.
