|Penelope was capable of almost any mischief.|
It's great to have time to contribute to this week's Illustration Friday. I'm not sure what Penelope is putting in the town water supply in this picture, but it's all in good fun. I think she's one of those children from Harry Graham's 'Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes', which (strangely) my grandmother encouraged me to read. You might remember this one:

Which the plumber built her,
Aunt Eliza fell...
We must buy a filter.
