“Robert, Tracy and mums’ dog Spanner were up early. It was an important day and mum
needed lots of help. They had a good routine, and it wasn't long before breakfast
was over and all the washing up was done. They were going to see Jesus in the countryside,
and Mum made sardine rolls for their picnic.
After a long ride the bus came to a car park full of people. There were so many
people it was like going to a big football match. All of a sudden they couldn't find
mum. They were very worried. How could she manage with out Spanner?”
I wrote and illustrated the Fish and loaves story based on the parable of the Feeding
of the Five Thousand in the Bible to help with fund raising and promotion of the
St Philips School carving. The central illustration in the story is the same as the
carved Bath stone panel in the school.
