"Rosalie's Journey" Comic
The early 1920s: If it were up to Rosalie, she and her friend Madame Mel would now be at home in their nice, cozy meadow. Instead, the shy yellow-necked mouse and the old quarrelsome hamster find themselves on board a swimming colossus that crosses the Mediterranean Sea towards Africa. Young Rosalie suddenly has to save a group of mouse passengers from a ferret, the daring ship rat Curtis from himself and a boisterous rodent whippersnapper out of a trap.
“The Ship to Africa” is the first part of the thrilling adventures of Rosalie and her friends. It’s a carefully drawn black-and-white comic created by my sister Jelka and me, including three coloured pages.
