Also that, nice catch!

Listening to Mark, it sounded as if he thought Moist was wearing the dressing gown while climbing.

Why the dressing gown? I've always figured that it's a handy piece of clothing that can be put on fast, and can cover e.g. a suspicious black burglar's outfit pretty well...

Looks relevant - either the baby or their parent must be Borrowing those cats :)

Personally, I think the roses are pretty sweet (in both cases), even if the person producing them is warped.

Another thing: I never thought that the Wintersmith killed the rose bush. Don't they look dead anyway in winter? I imagine it will just bud again in spring/summer.

I don't think he's counterfeiting - it's more like creating coupons than creating fake money.

I've always read the "see me" trick as projection, i.e. Tiffany lets her consciousness step out of her body. She doesn't actually split herself.

I've never read the "taken in" comment as anything to do with sexual attraction - I just thought she didn't like the girls as persons.
(edit: the same goes for "take to" - but English is not my native language...)

I also disagree about your assessment of Jackrum here. I love the dynamic between Jackrum and Polly in the conversation about the 'four S-es' - it shows that Jackrum is gaining respect for Ozzer. The secret gleam in his eye might even indicate he thinks that Ozzer is sergeant material.

He's still an army sergeant, yelling is part of the job (and the stereotype, of course). As others have pointed out, he doesn't punish Tonker more than by giving her the "lectchoor", he could have done a lot more. Besides, Tonker can handle a bit of shouting; note that he doesn't shout at Wazzer when he teaches her how to use the horse bow.
