The squirrel looks terribly pleased. "Just this way!"

He switches to all-fours as he leads them off the path and into the trees. The light seems to change as they go, just subtly. The trees, though perfectly ordinary trees, are suddenly not quite like those in Milliways.

What is less ordinary is the squirrel's house, which is not the sort of tangled nest that squirrels generally live it, but a large, stout tree with a door set right into the trunk. The squirrel hurried forward to pull the door open for the Pontmercys.

"Do come in!"
