The dream-house

 

page 3

They are in love.

Shall I tell you a story?

 

4 - 5

They see an ad. They think the hat is a house, and are determined to get one like this.

 

6

Windy weather. All kinds of hats, but none like the one they are looking for.

 

7

At last, -- up side down on the top of a man: the house of their dreams.

He is heading towards a man-hole (house)

 

8

The two rabbits follow him.....

 

9

... being careful.

 

10

OH ! GOSH ! THE FOX !!

But it turnes out to be only a dead one. What a relief.

 

11

They steal the hat.

 

12

Singing: da dee da day...

They have already decided where to put it.

 

13

Here. Right here.

It smells of smoke. A chimney? The flowers are suspicious.

 

14

Curious rabbits gather to look.

 

15

They are so happy.

 

You might want to know how two rabbits all of a sudden become 10 rabbits?

Perhaps you also want to know how all these rabist can live in one hat?

I have no explanations.

Must be a secret -- or magic?

 

16 - 17

Something terrible happens: Two boys see the hat. They pick it up.

 

18 - 19

Wauw! A magic hat!

We are going to earn money by being magicians!

 

20

What do we do now?

 

21

Hurray! We need no longer stay in that hat!

 

22

OK. It was a beautiful house, wasn't it?

Of course it caused us some trouble having to turn it up side down every time when it was raining. But it was worth it.

 

23

Now we'll just find an ordinary rabbit-hole.

The next youngs are due any time.
