Well, yes, that's the problem; both The Spellcoats and Cart and Cwidder lack 
whole *pages* of stuff the translator apparently couldn't handle, so parts of 
the story don't make sense. I wonder why they've been published at all! Byt 
that didn't keep me from loving them as a child, so there must have been 
enough to spill over.

(My kids had the same in a new edition, but with the same text. Gah.)
