IPOLA:   I am eternally grateful for your help.     LIRI: We were just on our way to the Moon Tribe.  Princess Tula … um … Well, it sounds a bit silly to say with all the important things going on, but … she said we could adopt a … a kitten.    IPOLA: It’s not silly at all – it’s quite serious.  We don’t adopt hunting cats out of the tribe, usually.  Still, I can see now why Tula would make such a gesture to you.  I will personally make sure that it happens.    LIRI: Oh, thanks!  Emmon is very excited about it.  Aren’t you?   EMMON: Uh-huh! Ma and … and Da they wouldn’t let me have a puppy … said I’d prob’ly hurt it. `Cause I’m too big and stupid.    IPOLA: Emmon, I am Queen of the Moon Tribe, and if I say you can be trusted with one of our hunting cats, then you can. You don’t seem stupid to me, at all. And I think you’re just the right size for you.    LIRI: That’s what we tell him, isn’t that right?    Emmon smiles shyly.  He says something in Liri’s ear.    LIRI: What?  Oh well, of course she is.    IPOLA: What? LIRI: He says you’re a very nice lady.     IPOLA: Thank you, Emmon..  Now, with your permission, I really need to sleep.

  1. Ipola looks so young in the third panel.

  2. I think it should read
    “And I think you’re just the right size for THEM ”
    or
    “And I think THEY’LL just the right size for you. “

    1. @[LurkerAbove]:
      It looks to me like …
      — MAYBE HE’S the right size for THEM, &
      — MAYBE THEY’RE the right size for HIM, but
      — he’s ALWAYS the right size for HIMSELF.
      It sounds like she’s saying that he’s “perfect just the way he already is.”
      🙂

      1. I’m the right size for me, and you’re the right size for you, also.

        Sometimes, it feels like not everybody knows Fred anymore, since he left to take care of the next big thing. It doesn’t have to be this way. There’s still the whole archive of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. You could do a marathon of it any time you want.

  3. Awww! Such a sweet page! 😀 And Ipola saying Emmon is just the right size for who he is is such a nice thing to say. Don’t make fun of people be they giant or little.
    Emmon’s in good hands with Keltan and Liri.
    I guess Ipola and the giants will go back to the Moon tribe together now? It certainly does make sense to go together since they have the same destination.

  4. Happy 15th anniversary!

  5. This is very definitely a *very* beautiful day in the neighborhood.
