2012 TREASURE HUNT CLUE #7: What reason does a brother give his sister for why fish sparkle? (Answer: In “And Whether Fish Have Wings”, by Angie, Coyote tells Beetle a story in which “Once fish were a kind of bird and they had very shiny feathers on their big wings and they were all over the place.”)
(Ed. Note: Coyote was a former name of Notch’s.)
Starskimmer lay resting in her furs with the young newborn held gently against her breast; so soon after the birth it was understandable that she’d still be lying down to regain her strength. Her young daughter was nuzzled sleeping against her, and both mother and daughter were peaceful in their repose.
Starkly contrasted to the peacefulness at that end of the room was Coyote, who could hardly contain himself or the wide grin on his face. He had a little sister now, and he was going to be the best big brother ever!
Just imagine the stories to tell her.
