  • I published A CARNIVAL OF ANIMALS on CB a couple of weeks ago. My friend Komachi decided to do some paintings to illustrate the poem. Here is an extract:

    The Caracal came in a coracle

    The Bison bicycled and gave a ride
    To the Shrike on his bike

    The Shrew flew

    The Duckbill Platypus
    Came on a double decker bus
    With his pal the Octopus

    The Goat came by boat
    Accompanied by the Stoat
    The Ant
    Rode an Elephant
