Maybe I should be concerned when the boundary between fiction and reality seems to blur. Remember that little squirrel from a couple of earlier posts? Well, right now I really do feel as though I need to have a word with him. So anyway… um… I’ve decided to just go with it…
Yes, my little rodent friend. What have you been up to, may I ask?
Me? Well, I suppose I have been a bit busy with other things. In fact I was just drawing this illustration for the official Dick King-Smith website, (not yet live, but you can see some tweets here), when I heard about Miss Marshall’s rodent visitor.
What a coincidence, I thought. So I told Miss Marshall about Flora, the intelligent rodent from Dick King-Smith’s book, The School Mouse. In return, Miss Marshall showed me some of the amazing creative homework her class had done on the theme of rodents.
Oh dear. I’ve kept you waiting a long time, haven’t I?
If there are, they’ll only be fictional pens, OK?
