It wasn't very deep here - it would only have reached Tiffany's knees if she'd paddled - but it was suddenly darker and greener and, somehow, much deeper.

There was no point in telling anyone about this. Everyone would just say 'What an imagination the child has' if they were feeling in a good mood, or 'Don't tell stories!
She was still very angry. How dare a monster turn up in the river? Especially one so. Who did it think she was? From the Trade Paperback edition.

He says that one night, after being kept awake until almost morning, he took his gun just at daylight and sallied forth, determined on vengeance.
