‘Plock’.

Any guesses? Any readers of Jasper Fforde will hopefully recognise her, but if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading the Thursday Next series (in which case, get to the bookshop now!) then you may be in the dark.

Meet Pickwick. She’s a dodo. Yes, the extinct flightless bird. In the Fforde books, dodos have been brought back to life via clever DNA extraction, and the protagonist of the Thursday Next series has a pet dodo called Pickwick. See, not too complicated…

A new Thursday Next book has just come out (One Of Our Thursdays Is Missing) and to celebrate, I made this bookmark for my friend. She is the one who first introduced me to the series and she is coming down to visit me next week, so I thought it would be nice to give her something to mark the occasion! Sorry about the quality of the photos, I’m still having to rely on my phone and it doesn’t deal too well with the dull, grey light that we have been having lately. (Roll on Spring!) Oh – the noise that dodos make is ‘plock’. In case there’s anyone getting worried.
