Good & Evil -- fiction
Mustache Baby builds upon a cute visual gag with a grand display of wit and verve. When Baby Billy is born, his parents are surprised to find a fully-grown mustache adorning his upper lip. The nurse informs them, "You'll just have to wait and see whether it is a good-guy mustache or a bad-guy mustache."
"It's a horrible day," said Will Stanton. "It's creepy somehow."
In Susan Cooper’s The Dark Is Rising, Will’s words prove to be every bit a true prophecy. On the day before his eleventh birthday, Will and his brother escaped from their noisy, happy house into the quiet English countryside. A black wind was blowing just a bit of snow, but there was more to come, snow and blackness both, for the Dark was rising across the land. They stopped to get some hay at Dawson's Farm—an ordinary errand. The farmer took Will aside. "The Walker is abroad... and this night will be bad, and tomorrow will be beyond imagining."
