Lovely illustrations! Beautiful details and pattern contrasts. So carpenter ants don't only destroy buildings, they create them, too?

Oh, I've always wanted a conservatory! Even upside-down and in the sea, it's gorgeous. The thought of a starfish steering a jellyfish...Emily, you have such a fantastic imagination.

Glad to hear you had a fantastic voyage of your own. Whew, all those cities must have been wondrous. Thanks so much for the lovely shout out!
