Best early birthday present ever: this amazing Pinkorama by Julie and Casey, “Amy Meets the Purple Peep-tian”.
The scene is from Chapter Fifteen of The Secret History of the Pink Carnation, in which the Purple Gentian, aka Lord Richard Selwick, attempts to burgle the study of Edouard de Balcourt– and finds someone waiting for him under the desk.
Here’s the scene:
Richard, poised on the windowsill, next to that globe…
… mocking Balcourt’s choice of reading material…
(Of course, he would read Lady Whistledown!)
… and his Egyptological decorating scheme…
(Don’t you love the cartouche with Peepopatra?)
… while Amy tries to stay very, very still under the table.
How fabulous is that? Huzzah, Julie and Casey!
