Well known children's author-illustrator, and CtC honorary president, Rubin Pingk has once again provided CtC with an illustration to mark the marque tour of the season. As well as the illustration, Rubin sent this motivational message:
"Greetings heirs of Zeus,
Many days have passed since word of your travels have reached these Yankee shores. I am sorry to inform you that without the infusion of valor, which tales of your cricket prowess inspire among us, we of the Stars and Stripes have made a terrible blunder in choosing our leadership. I am certain that had the minstrels sung the songs of the Sons of Thunder, we would have made better electoral decisions. Alas, in our hopeless and weakened state, we did error, confusing bluster for gallantry.
And so it is with renewed hope that I learn of your march upon Brittany. I look forward to hearing the tales of might and wonder that so often follow you.
May you bat with the ferocity of Aries and bowl with the swiftness of Hermes.
Bring light to a darkened world!
Yours across the pond,
