I couldn't for the life of me remember the name of Auntie Bea's Day
Out when I was commenting somewhere about the similarities in some DWJ
and Joan Aiken stories.  Auntie Bea also gives you a bad adult as do a
lot of Joan Aiken's.  I think the point I was making was when I was
reading some DWJ short stories, including that one and Pink Toad Stool
(if that's the right one) made me think of the story Cat Flap and
Apple Pie and for a bit I couldn't decide if Cat Flap and Apple Pie
(which I hadn't read in quite a while) was by Ms Jones or Ms Aiken.
Which I think Ms Jones might have taken as a compliment :)  Well, I
just assume everyone likes Joan Aiken, since I have loved her since
grade school when our teacher read us all of Wolves of Willoughby
Chase and had Black Hearts and Nightbirds on the shelves for us to
read to ourselves.  Possibly Ms Aiken would have taken it as a
compliment too :)
