Gosh so I never meant to just leave that story there! To recap, Emily swam into a platypus, which lost its beak in the crash; she took it to her doctorfish friend, but the operation resulted in a rhino head, which it didn’t much like (though as far as I can tell, platypuses are grumpy creatures who really don’t like much of anything).  Now the platypus is swimming off in a huff, or trying to, only Emily is a difficult rhino to shake.

Pfft whoever said a picture is worth a thousand words clearly was not reading my blog. I demand a rewrite – “A picture conveys about half a sentence, at least when it concerns the adventures of underwater rhinoceroses” would be much more accurate!

  1. I am enjoying this continuing story 🙂

    Have you read any of Scott McCloud’s books? He commented on the “picture is worth a thousand words” idea in Making Comics:

    “Look, it’s Kelly Donovan, twin brother of the guy who played Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer!”


    1. Ha, excellent!! I did read some Scott McCloud but it was absolute ages ago – I think I need to have another look! Thanks for the reminder – and now I know what my next book will be… 🙂 🙂 🙂
