If anyone gives a hoot, I met Ceil Baring-Gould about 15 or more years ago. She was a real estate agent for a house and land that I looked at in Pound Ridge, NY. She had written an Annotated Alice, Annotated Mother Goose and dtto for Sherlock Holmes. I couldn't afford the property.
I seem to remember that either the monkey OR the Weasel was an apprentice. Luv, Larry Parish
