This happened after I came across Jess Smiley’s blog and saw that he was looking for monster doodles to include in Rumpus on the Run: A Monster Look-N-Find Book! It’s well worth having a look at his illustrations, because you won’t be able to help but smile!
NAQs (Never Asked Questions): “Why does your monster have wellies?”
I’m not sure how many monsters wear wellies, but I basically live in farm country and had to climb a hedge to avoid sinking in a muddy lane the other day. Proper Devonian monsters would need to be able camouflage themselves against tractors, hedges, cliffs and mud and would probably only be able to live on Devon cream teas*!
*For some reason, the order of jam and clotted cream in a cream tea causes a lot of arguments between Cornish and Devonian people and nobody knows why.
If you’re interested in silly Devonisms, you might have a giggle at Things Devonians Don’t Say!
Please recommend any great comic/music blogs in the comments – I’d love to follow a few more!
Anyway, I’m off to have a nice dinner with my grandparents, so I’d better go!
Blog to you soon! 😀
