I love this! Who is that with the cane...? Frank?
I believe that is Frank, yes! Look a bit more dapper since he was taken off by the Erl King! Lovely blog today from you about Joan Aiken, by the way!
He's got a look of Frank Sinatra - an undead Sinatra risen from the beyond. But I particularly love the look of Mr Danby!(And thank you. I was snapping away at our gin bottles for ages getting that illustration right...)
