In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Happy day, it isn’t Trader Joes Cherry Cider, but it was certainly a yummy drink!

Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce is a book I hadn’t heard of before and then within a weeks time, I learned it would be part of Hong Kong Battle of the Books and then a favorite reviewer Anita Silvey on Book-A-Day-Almanac reviewed it! I look forward to reading this quite soon- reminds me of The Secret Garden and The Humming Room.

Goodreads Summary: “Tom was a cross and resentful boy when he was sent to stay with his uncle and aunt because his brother, Peter , had caught the measles. As soon as he joined his relatives in their small apartment, he knew he would be bored and lonely. He would miss Peter as well as the garden to explore, there was only a paved yard and a row of garbage cans outside the back door.
When the time came for Tom to go home, however, he did everything he could to prolong his visit. For he had made a strange and wonderful discovery–a discovery that he could share with no one, except Peter. And Peter believed it all, and even, for one brief moment, came to share in Tom’s fantastic midnight adventure.”
