TOBY AND TABATHA IN THE TINY CITY

Toby and Tabatha were taking an early morning walk one summer’s day, when they chanced upon a tiny city, built on the outskirts of their town. While Tabatha peered over one of the castellated walls of the city, Toby leaped over it and sat happily on a cobbled street to gather his thoughts for while. The two cats felt they had been transported into another era. The few people they saw on the street were tiny and dressed in Victorian costume.

A soldier courageously stood guard close to where Toby sat. Slightly past the soldier, a well-dressed lady had stopped for a moment, apparently lost in thought. Neither of the characters appeared to be in the least perturbed by Toby and Tabatha, which puzzled the two friends.

Of course, what you may have guessed, but they have yet to work out, is that our two feline friends had wandered into the town’s brand new model village; not yet open to the public.

Won’t Toby and Tabatha get a surprise when Mr. Grimshaw the Park Attendant arrives at nine o’clock to start his day’s work? They will actually get a big shock when they discover that Mr. Grimshaw, a grumpy man at the best of times, has an intense dislike of cats, however cute and fluffy they may be ….

    As usual … I apologise for the scan … I have a good scanner, but I put a lot of detail in this and the jpeg would need to be viewed the size of your screen to see it all.

    Ah, this is really nice and so wonderfully detailed. Love the story that goes with it, and Tabatha hiding behind the wall put a smile on my face. =3

    This is so cool! I think ‘enchanting’ (as pinkyjain said) is the best word for it :)

    Superb little tale, for us kids of all ages!
    Beautifully illustrated in your unique style, Dave.
    Excellent pencil work and shading.
    The square, reminds me of the 18th century barracks in Berwick (now a museum).

  • The square was actually based on a picture of Great Budworth, Cheshire, but I certainly know what you mean about the Berwick barracks, as I have been there.
