'The world is a puzzle, and we cannot solve it alone.' Very different to Lemony's attitude in ?1. Of course, if he is writing down what happened some time later, he might have become wiser about the need to rely on other people, although he still seems very alone in ASOUE.
I love how the other town kids become a team for him, and they're all in it together. I think the show did a better job of working this out with the adults like Jacqueline and Larry behind the scenes, although not really with Lemony.
This exchange between Lemony and Ellington makes it seem like she is just as suspicious of him as he is of her. A version of this series narrated from Ellington's perspective would be very interesting - sometimes, it's hard to figure out how much she knows, but I think assuming she doesn't know much makes her more complex as a character.
And I always wonder whether she is noble or not. I don't think we ever get a true answer.
Do melons really have a smell?
There are few things better than the smell of a ripe cantaloupe.
Interesting that Moxie's mother is, like Dr Orwell, known for saying 'you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar'. It seems like Dr Orwell is supposed to be around the same age as Lemony/Olaf/etc in ASOUE, so I don't think she can be Mrs Mallahan. I don't think Moxie can be her, either. But maybe there's some connection?
How awful would that be, if Moxie were Dr. O!
It feels like there's some significance in both Moxie and Squeak having watches belonging to their fathers.
It's kind of like a parallel to the spyglasses in the tv show.
Faith is being sure about what we hope for, being convinced about things we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
