Bottersnikes and Gumbles

Over Sunday dinner last night, someone suddenly recalled Bottersnikes and Gumbles. Or at least, they said 'What was that book with the horrible ugly creatures and the cute squishy on...' and three people said 'Bottersnikes and Gumbles!' instantly, and were very very surprised to find themselves sat around a table with others who fondly remembered the book, too.

I, foolishly, said ' You know, I remember them so well I bet I can draw you one' - and did a strange rendition that looked a bit like the really cack handed EH Sheperd Roo drawing from Winnie The Pooh. The other guest then went 'That's Crap! They looked like *this*. Of course, we went to the internet to solve the argument.

It turns out that each of us had remembered a different Gumble from the stack of Gumbles on the cover...

So - a challenge - draw your own Gumble-From-Memory before clicking the link...
