THE TOWN CRIER - Read all about it!
Somewhere in Nowhere there is a newspaper circulating; Tea and Rattus were relieved to find a connection to the "civilized" world. "Look at this old thing", whispered Tea. "Rabbit Hill Pub and Restaurant is serving high tea today for half the price. Shall we slip out and risk it?" "What about the others old man?" said Rattus. "Oh, I don't think they would mind if we slipped out for a bit; besides Mozes takes to eating wild things
and I have a bit of indigestion from last night's venison. Oh come now man, listen, we can bring back a hankerchief full of biscuits for Gretta and Racoon and a real kidney pie for Mozes. What do you say we take the back road to Rabbit Hill...eh?"
Rattus was a bit homesick for some good old-fashioned cooking and the ad in the paper had said that Rabbit Hill Pub employed the best chefs in the county, and to their surprise, the head chef was none other than...
yes, it was Cecelie herself. They ordered two whole pies and didn't even make it out the door, for her light touch had created a crust flakier and lighter than a feather and had a soporific effect
and the two friends were then carried up to one of the rooms to sleep off their indulgence for the night.
