And now, talking of books, I have just completed a preliminary placement of the final illustrations for Immy Goes Riding, and am utterly thrilled. One needs a tiny bit of adjustment, but all the others are simply brilliant. I mean, just look at this one of Fernis the dragon after having snacked on some bothersome goblins. Isn’t he lovely?
