I have two sons, both of whom are the children of their mother, my wife, one of whom is rather darker than she is, whilst the other one is not.
I read the AR S&A series, as far as BS, to the older, browner, one, who went on to read ML, PM and GN for himself, and he is very happy to take you, or anyone else, round Secret Water, or to Pin Mill, and to point out the relevant features of the Nancy Blackett to you.
