From Susan Muddles Through. Among the guests at Mrs. Macdonald's farm on Arran, in addition to the ghastly Gascoignes and the cousins, is Susan's cat Chang. However, even before they get out of London, Chang is upset and gets stuck up a tree, requiring an emergency rescue operation. This illustration shows an aghast Susan and Mrs. Taylor, the Carmichaels' daily help, powerless to stop the furious Chang from breaking out of his new travel basket. More trouble awaits them on the car journey, as Peregrine slips a mouse into the car, driving Chang into another fit of rage.
