friends of the DFC
Here are Lettuce, Vern and three of the bunnies with my good friends Esther and Samuel, who love what they’ve seen so far in the DFC. They are very cool people. Samuel joined my book club a few years ago, when he was nine, even though it wasn’t really meant for children. I had spread the word among my friends that I was starting up a book club, and when Samuel asked if he could be in it, I said I didn’t think I’d be able to set up a separate club for kids. But every time he saw me, he’d ask again, and now he’s been coming for about three years. About a year in, he started bringing along his little sister, and they both talk about the books they’ve read in the first half hour of our meeting before heading off again. So, of course, they’re the first people I wanted to introduce to Vern and Lettuce!
They were very stoic in the photo shoot; Samuel started streaming tears from hay fever and Esther and I accidentally sat on an anthill. We’ve all decided we don’t want a career in modeling.
