A Children’s Book

My Little Armadillo

(and other remarkable creatures)

(A few lines from a children story)

On a day both bleak and dreary I woke a little bleary

to find a little armadillo sleeping soundly on my pillow.

It was round and rather bony,

long-tailed and sort of phoney.

Was it an animal or a mammal?

I couldn’t tell.

This thing was so confounding,

and equally astounding

that I had to do some research,

there and then,

so I looked up Mr Google,

and asked about young Dougal,

the creature sleeping quietly in my bed.

Now, according to one expert,

or so I do believe,

the armadillo is a most peculiar beast.

It is not a freak of nature

 but a wonder of creation,

with elements that make it most unique.

  1. Good luck with your work and many thanks for following mine. Jean-Luc’s artwork is beautiful.

    • Hello Johanna. I spend a lot of time looking at your website as your dreamy images make it so very easy to get drift away into a faraway world. Australia is a long way from anywhere, especially Europe…and it is a big effort to get there. I am planning another trip next year, but in the meantime, I shall continue to follow your adventures and drool with envy. Thank you for the opportunity.

      • I’ve never been to Australia and doubt I ever will so I’m quite envious of life “down under”. I do my fair share of dreaming too. 🙂

      • Life here is petty good and for an adventurer such as yourself Jo…and there is a hellluva lot to see. Not to mention the fact that most Australians are very amenable…we have to be…out of adversity…we have created a wonder of the modern world in 200 years and more than likely…it will only get better.
