This picture illustrated an early version of our story, in which the MouseKing abducts Katya to his Clipper in the clouds, (a rather Jules Verne idea) with the Nutcracker gamely hanging on to the undercarriage with his one remaining arm. I have mislaid the colour version which pisses me off more than somewhat....it came out rather well, and would have looked great here.
