The final narrated double page spread. We get to see Rat cheat and beat Ox, who has pretty much done all the work.
Having seen all the other pages with the animals partially under water I wanted this image to be slightly more from above, so there's only a shadow of Ox's body under the water, no detail. I love how rat has been presented here, that combined with Ox's surprise, really captures exactly what the story narrates. As my tutors are continuously telling me, the images should tell the story and I'm quite pleased with this one. I'd like to think it does the job very well.
