The original book is Rupert the Rhinoceros.
Illustrations by tibor gergely like Daddies and Scuffy
Tried going one page deeper than usual. Loved the deepest image best – Gergely’s crowd scenes are so wonderful.
Discovered it’s impossible to tell the whole story in a tunnel. i can only tell a moment.
Rupert’s story is that he’s short sighted so he charges everything. He gets loose in New York and terrorizes the city. Then an optometrist gets him glasses. But people are still afraid. So the optometrist invites everyone to a party to meet Rupert to see he’s ok.
This tunnel is just the party invitation invitation. I used the telephone box as a front cover/ door for the tunnel.
So now we both know the secret. The colors were closer enough and the tree obscured enough for it to work.
Like the rest of the golden book series this book is 14x12cm. It’s around 2cm thick when closed.
