Although they aren’t in any sense essential reading, these notes are intended to supplement your reading of the novella ‘Nursery Politics’ in the anthology Nobody’s Children. Be warned that they do include significant SPOILERS for all three of the novellas in the volume.

These notes should only be read, therefore, after reading ‘Nursery Politics’, which should itself be read only after first reading ‘All Mimsy Were the Borogoves’ and ‘The Loyal Left Hand’. Even the titles of some of these notes – which are given below – may spoil the book for some readers.

If, despite this warning, you read the notes ahead of the book... well, don’t come complaining to me. created and maintained by Philip Purser-Hallard.
