I'm in the middle of packing and cleaning for tomorrow's move (g'bye St Jean de Luz), but I want to post Sunday's snippet while it is still Sunday.

I had a few illustration ideas, but having the storyboard layout, with the correct number of pages, has shown me that I need even more drawings than I thought...assuming they fit with the text layout. Writing with pictures is technical and challenging in a way adult/non-illustrated fiction is not. :P

“I’m sorry,” the queen said. “It is not mine to give. It was a gift from the king.” She pulled off her own hat. “You can have mine if you like. I made it myself.”
