Over on the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators group, there are a few postings of videos people have made on YouTube to publicise their books. I like the idea. I'd like to do a video for my book using Victorian panto and joke illustrations.

Don't know yet what the storyline will be but I'll definitely get Sidney to do the commentary. He's desperate to make a movie and goes around muttering the "soundtrack" to movies he's making up inside his head. He's also devoted to YouTube Lego or cardboard Star Wars. (There's a whole group of people out there who re-enact their favourite movies in Lego or with plastic figures, I have discovered).

To get back to the Victorian illustrations, I'm still puzzling over the answer to the riddles in the picture which I am putting up here. Carroll, like many Victorians, was a big fan of riddles. Riddle Me Ree
