  1. I dunno, this hotTea likes THAT OTHER HOT DRINK, but since he likes teacakes, too, he may be okay.😉 The Three Hens and a Peacock looks HILARIOUS; I imagine Henny Penny with a peacock in it. Love how the dog just gives everyone side-eye, like, “ALL of you birds have issues…”

    1. It’s a great story and with Henry Cole’s illustrations, irresistible.🙂 The teacakes book is wonderful too and definitely makes up for “that other hot drink”!😀
