Q stands for Ouaint and Quilp.
This Quirky house is for sale at a cool one million dollars (£795,000:00)
It is in a village called Hertford apparently one of the most desirable and expensive place to live in the UK. It is said to be a Quaint Victorian Water Tower.
My next Q stands for Daniel Quilp who is an evil little dwarf in Charles Dickens' 'The Old Curiosity Shop'.
Quilp lends money to Nell's grandfather, who has a gambling habit .
Nell is the main protagonist in the story and lives in the shop with her grandfather, who is struggling to raise her after her parents died.
The reason why grandfather is gambling is so that he can leave Nell enough money to keep her after he's gone.
Unfortunately he gambles all the money away and can't repay Quilp.
So, he and Nell go on the run to escape the dwarf.
Quilp attempts to find them but thankfully, is unsuccessful!
Later, Quilp is pursued by the Police, but he gets lost in the fog and drowns in the River Thames.
This a brief synopsis of one of Charles Dickens most popular stories.
If you haven't read the story I hope you can get a copy, it's a real good read with lot's more Quirky Dickensian characters.
