      I have never met anyone (until now) who knows about these books, which I read avlidy as a child. I never understood this. To my way of thinking the Maida books were up there with all the childhood classics and series books, yet people I've asked have never heard of them.I've always remembered a phrase from one of the books, and for some reason I just Googled that phrase and found this forum!The phrase is the bosky dell I think it was a descripton of where Maida and her friends were having a picnic. I have no idea which book it was from, I just know I've always remembered that phrase, and the scene and even some of the food descriptions like sandwiches made on thick bread. It's funny what we remember, isn't it?Well, it was fun finding this and it makes me want to try to track down a few of the books or at least the one with the bosky dell in the story!

      I never heard of momos before. Apparently, they are similar to Chinese steamed dumplings. Thanks for sharing.
