Anna picked out a book at the library called The Spring Cleaning, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It's about fairies who get spring ready for Primrose Day for a little girl named Bunch. On the page where you would expect to read the dedication there is a quote from Queen Crosspatch - the fairy who is the teller of the story.
"...how is a person to find time for stories when she works seventy-five hours a day. You may say that there are not seventy-five hours in a day, but I know better. I work seventy-five hours every day whether they are there or not."
