Spoiler for End of Book
I think it's interesting that Blake doesn't specify which book each child receives. Even they themselves aren't sure. I'd like to think they Blake intended them to start with their opposite in order to understand each other even better.

Having read Blake's "Songs of Experience", the experiences described in those poems are darker than what Maggie is dealing with.
I've only read the beginning of the book and expect things to get much darker as their lives progress...
