really wanted to see her interact with CalvinBut I can understand.It sets up Wow Out of all of t This one is pretty weak The name thing is especially stupid It takes literally 150 pages out of 278 for them to figure out with a startled flash of comprehension that there s gosh a connection between various people named Madoc, Madog, Maddok, Maddox, Mad Dog, Branwen, Brandon, Bran, Zyll, Zylle, Zillo,
