From “Rip Squeak and His Friends”, the first book in the series.
This wonderful image depicts the first time that the four new friends get together and learn about each other while sipping some chamomile tea out of giant drinking straws and sitting on the counter in the kitchen inside the cottage. Euripides has them all entranced with stories of adventure and fun.
And just for fun, this image was actually inspired by an earlier image by the same name created by Leonard depicting some elf-like creatures he fondly calls Pixquiks.
Please note: This image was created and named in 1998 and has absolutely no affiliation with any political party by the same name… besides, Rip is to young to vote…
