Who better to enter the story than Slab, the Potter, who knows every inch of the Hillock, above and below ground. A perfect catalyst for Martha Julia Agnes Adele’s upcoming adventure. And maybe he’ll have some clues to the whereabouts of her shoe! He may need to be toned down a bit to keep him ‘manageable’. He does need to keep rather big hands and feet for digging and tunneling on his hunts for the best clay. Interesting that he doesn’t even have shoestrings to tie on his shoes!
