“I WENT OVER TO LOOK AT HIS PAINT-BOX”

“Dear, dear! My lad has put too much carrot in this time.” And he began to mix his paints in a great hurry, while the Lady Pig simpered and smiled, and said.

“Oh, Mr. Daubs, you are a funny fellow!”

When he had finished, I went over to look at his paint-box, for I had never heard of anyone using carrots to paint with before, and I thought he must have made a mistake, and had meant Carmine or Crimson Lake, or Yellow Ochre, or Green Bice, or one of the proper paints; but there it was in a dear little tube, labeled “Finest Carrot,” and there was another tube of “Turnip,” and one of “Mangold-Wurzel,” and one of “Parsnip,” and altogether they were the funniest paints I had ever seen.

        1. Didn’t everyone eat crayons? Or at least chew on a few? There is something about color and taste – if you take more than a few crayon bites, well, you will get sick – but the taste test is an important moment!
