WOW! I didn't know Martha was fluent in Spanish! Or Cat, or Rat! As best I can figure, the cat is bragging about not only being descended from Egyptian gods but also one of his ancestors was a favorite of Louis XIV of France. The rat responds, in essense, "no big deal, cat, my family has always been distinguished in medical experimentation!" Wonderful drawings!
And, this beautiful watercolor for the end of summer! Love it!
To top it all off, Martha sends this gorgeous boekie about the origin of Halloween, beautifully illustrated. Thank you so much for your lovely work, Martha. I really appreciate it.
