We saw at once that Bonnie, who introduced herself now as Bonaventure, had the sallow complexion and sharp nose of a nun. Her eyes watered and she was a foot taller than any of her sisters, mostly because of the length of her neck which would one day hang from the end of a rope.
From the Enid Blyton 'Adventure' series. My favourite series. When I was 10 the nuns at the convent banned Blyton and I organised civil unrest! They were reacting to the current criticism of the author's verbal and descriptive poverty. Now I agree, then it was a tragedy.
