Draft 8, out to both publishers

This draft went to my Australian publisher, Allen & Unwin, and the American publisher Henry Holt, in early December 2004. The two books will end up quite different from each other despite being contracted from this same draft.

Moky and Bik lived on a boat called Bullfrog.
They lived in it, on it, all around it –
Monkeying up ladders
over the wheelhouse and across the cabin floor.

'Twins!' their mother shouted,
because the lines of her Art jiggled and jarred
when Mokie and Bik played bumpboats
bump thump rumpboats
