Lydia Mae Green, Rootin' Tootin' Comet Buster!


Illustration Friday topic this week is, Space. 

This is a pencil crayon illustration I did for one of my stories called, 
Lydia Mae Greene, Rootin' Tootin' Comet Buster. 


Story Exerpt:
Before rocket engines and aeroplanes, there lived a girl named Lydia.
Each day Lydia practised her trick roping on Lighting, her painted pinto. He could leap farther than tomorrow and lope as gracefully as the morning mist. Lydia quickly became known as the best―some say, the best in the world.

Meanwhile, many miles away on Curly Maple Hill. Perched atop the highest piece of land in the valley, was a humungous telescope. It peered it’s gleaming eye past the the edge of the sky, beyond the moon, through the Milky Way and now precisely into the face of danger, a gigantic comet―with earth and destruction written all over it.

 A comet bigger than any ever seen was hurtling through space and in exactly three days time...would crash to earth!  Unless something was done immediately, this could be the biggest catastrophe the world had ever seen. What they needed was someone brave enough to travel to the edge of the sky, jump across to the moon and grab hold of the comet’s tail as it passed by. It was their only hope. 

     “We need hero―pronto!”  wailed Governor Noodleblatt.
Shortly, a telegram arrived addressed to Lydia. 
THE FATE OF THE WORLD IS IN YOUR HANDS, MISS GREENE. Signed Gov. J.P. Noodleblatt.

Lydia’s mother fluttered, “If ever there was a call for courage, it’s now, my dear.”
     “I’ll do it,” yelled Lydia, punching the air.
     Errol J let out a low whistle. “Holy Dinah!”
So, Lightning and Lydia, along with little brother Errol J. set off to save the world.
