Painting #6: The Rose Bushes


BORDER PHRASE: “In haste to chase, Jack Hare jumps dog, rose blushing, petals tumble upon air.”

BARBED LETTER WORD: CHILD

RED LETTER WORD: MOUSE

WORD FROM THE MASTER RIDDLE: BURIED

HIDDEN HARE: Not hidden at all, really.

CLUES & COMMENTS: I remember this spread being reproduced in an American’s children’s magazine called Dynamite. Since the border spells out “mouse,” and there’s one clinging to a blade of grass in the photo, the magazine asked, “Is the mouse pointing toward the treasure?” It was silly, but hey, it was a children’s magazine.

I have never been able to discern any master clue references in this picture.

I suppose the only master clue reference could be that this is the first double page picture in the book, indicating a work break in the CLOSE BY AMPTHILL acronym. Word break is also implied by the “break” in the text
