gwen, i smile!!
I finally have to ask, after all this time, what exactly ARE charlottes and why are they called that? Did I miss something? They are slightly odd and unsettling and completely wonderful!
Thanks Lynne and Stella! You can find out about the charlottes if you google 'Frozen Charlottes'. Try to find a non-eBay url, as most of the eBay ones are for collectors and don't give much info. I'll try to find a good one and refer to it the next time I mention these guys!
Thanks, Gwen! Using the prefix "frozen" did the trick, and this time I entered a strange and faintly creepy world which included photos, books, tales and even a little British theatre company. I can quite see how this fits in with your drawings of mummies and sarcophagi. Looking forward to seeing the completed Charlotte book, now with greater understanding.
