Appearing as the fifth colour plate within Lathrop's The Fairy Circus (1931), this illustration is associated with the

following text:


Then, in the wake of the trumpets' pealings, with crimson trappings swaying, plodded

the turtles. The fairies who rode on each great head were ever so gently rocked up

and down - up, till they looked down on the flowers, and down again past the leaves.

Though the turtles walked two abreast, they made a line longer than could be measured

by an cat tail stalk. And each turtle held on with his mouth to the tail of the turtle in

front of him.
