Appearing as the eighth major monotone illustration plate within Lathrop's The Fairy Circus (1931), this image is

associated with the following text:


The first mole up, the fairies pushed and down he slid backwards, and landed

all higglety-pigglety. He picked himself up and wiggled himself all over carefully.

He was still perfectly whole. The next one landed with is legs in the air. He

loved it! They all did! It was just like home. There they had chutes of hard-packed

earth wherever their tunnels dipped suddenly, but none so slippery smooth, none

down which they could shoot like lightning.
