Plate 52 Page 113 Septimus Septimüs is a typical Night-Troll. He steals silently and stealthily around people's gardens and under bridges when the stars and moon are hidden by clouds and night is thickest. He is a terrifying and unnerving sight, or rather he would be if you ever saw him, but he is so silent and so stealthy and his visits so brief that nobody ever knows he's there or even not there (see Bregg the Poet's "Ode to a Twark's Egg," page 79)... and that's the worrying part.
