Inside the book:
“I looked again at the soil.
Nearby it looked softer.
More powdery. I was fascinated.
I longed to go and wallow in it.
But how was I to get there?
Clambering, I knew. Pushing and shoving and pecking, I knew. But walking forwards is something I hadn’t tried in all my time in the battery. First I lifted one leg, and put it down. Then I lifted the other. But both legs just came down in the same spot as before.”
