About the page...
    Hmm... Looks like that naughty little Otter is taking a little more than his share. The Portrayal script reads "him" even though Clare is obviously female. I thought about making the script gender-neutral, but it became impossible to write.
    Although I did do a little "copy and paste" to make this, each rendition of Pete and Clare is unique, mostly to display the light and shadows. It took ages to draw seven characters.

The story thus far...
    Grace and Simon, two teenage tearaways, have discovered a passage to Reality in the basement of The tré (a tiny theatre in their miniscule town of Otterstow). Unfortunately, they have accidentally trapped themselves and cannot return, although they do not seem to be in any hurry to do so.
    Ignatius (the mayor of Otterstow) suspects this is the case and has enlisted the aid of the parents; Slide, Sandra, Pete and Gina. None of the adults have figured out how to open the passage, which seems to involve a mysterious box that they cannot open.

What's going on right now:
    After Clare finishes her portrayal, Ignatius will take her to Trinova (the capital of The Kingdom) so they can do some research at the library and make some enquiries.

The tré

    As soon as Clare crept onto the stage, all of the little children pointed and shouted, "Otter-otter-otter!" presumably hoping that they might warn the hapless bear and change the outcome of the play. Although their efforts did not have this effect, it would not be accurate to say that they were disappointed.

    Clare put her index finger to her lips, indicating that they should be silent. This only increased the efforts of the juvenile audience. Pete continued his imaginary feast, pretending to be oblivious to the din.
