Little Boo is a pet fish. He was given to Merlin by his friend Myrtle on his 3712th birthday. Merlin, however, has no time for animals that don’t make themselves useful.
So he put Little Boo to work as the manager of his store/lab, The Spell. Hey, who better to manage people than a pet, right?
To get around the whole Fish-Can’t-Walk-or-Talk thing, Merlin built Little Boo a robotic body, powered by magic steam.
Welcome to the world of The Camelot Kids!
And here he is, making himself useful. Ian Greenlee captures the moment when Little Boo offers Simon and Maille Rose a tour of The Spell. It doesn’t go well, as you’ll see in The Camelot Kids: Part Two!
Get The Camelot Kids: Part One to catch up on the exciting story that one reviewer called, “an amazing reinvention of the Arthurian Legend”!
These illustrations really make the story so much more magical. Also, that skeleton body is so much more creepier than I originally imagined…
Thanks Nick! When Nathan Fox introduced me to Ian’s work I knew he would make my work shine a bit more ;-) He’s delivering everything he’s got. I had the same response to Little Boo mixed with a hit of delight that I’ll probably remember for the rest of my life.
