The mice in the cracked egg

This illustration was done to illustrate a rhyme about mice living in a cracked egg. I got my hands sticky investigating exactly what a cracked egg with yoke spilling out looks like and did a lot of pencil studies before feeling I had got it just right.

As always Bertie the Rabbit makes an appearance - this time as either a chicken-thief, or a chicken-rescuer!
