Tamberlane is going to get very good at catching knives around Belfry.
Page 96
Tamberlane learned that sign earlier this chapter!
Page 97
Bah, he says. Oakewood shoulda been a sheep.
Page 98
Wait, a cover that's actually pertinent to the events in the chapter? What nonsense is this?
Chapter 3
And so we move from Summer to Fall!
Page 100
I wouldn't enjoy raw venison either.

Cat dad arrives!

I mean, with all the different creatures that travel from all over, I figured there would have to be something interesting to study. And here you are! An unknown creature thrust into a novel society, begging to be studied! It would be a great service to discover more about how she's learning and adapting, and how does she fit in and how her mannerisms change and whether she can ultimately integrate well into her new circumstances! The possibilities are endless! And I swear that I read some sort of similar case, only with a crocodile in a town in Nawan. You see, the crocodile, his name was Kashi, he was a feral kit, grew up in the woods, and his whole case was just so fascinating! And I see so many parallels here, and can you imagine what sort of valuable information we can glean from such a unique case? Because not only is she some kind of foreigner, but she's completely unknown as a species and we could use more information about the vast mysteries of the world we live in. I mean, what if she's from some lost civilization? Or what if she's a singular specimen entirely? The impact on science and sociology of a long term case study is beyond what I can even articulate at this moment and I'm incredibly grateful for the chance to study such an interesting case and put my name on the map for Sociology and earn my doctorate with this research. I just can't believe such a perfect case fell into my lap before I even really got off the boat! What phenomenal luck! Uncle Claude, you really are a great creature for helping me out with this project

I don't think that's how you're supposed to crack a back.

Page 132
♫ I'm sick of this life, I just want to scream, how could this happen to me? ♫
Page 133
I have been told that I'm forbidden from drawing Tamberlane like that ever again.
Page 134
An apology? From Tess? It's more likely than you think.
Page 135
Well, she got interested fast.
Page 136
Oops, looks like someone's got the doki-doki's.

Tamberlane, can you sign "ongoing trauma"?
Page 197
Sometimes I wish I could put actual sounds in comics, just to be able to get across the frantic little slapping sound of snappy, distressed signing.
Page 198
"Yeah, I'll start a fight. And I'll end it too!! From time out!!"
Page 199
Sometimes you don't need words.
Page 200
"We don't solve our problems with violence, Piper!" Typical.
Page 201
Seems Parsley's household is pretty busy with Cur, eh?

Page 258
You'd think this was all an excuse for Piper to bite Anthony, but she doesn't really need an excuse for that.
Page 259
Where was she keeping that lantern? The world may never know.
Page 261
Get with the program, Anthony.
