Thomas the Rhymer by William Dolby

- a Ballad by William Dolby, written and illustrated by himself many decades ago and published under his own name as a hard-backed book in 2013.

As taken from inside the book:

This is the ancient story of Thomas the Rhymer, wizard musician and sort of brave hero, and how he tries in a bumbling way, to find a cure for a queen, meets up with a grabbish water-horse, a helpless fairy, various spitting demons, an oily beelzebub, and various other obstreperous impediments, drops into the Irish Sea from a grand height, hooks up with a bray-crazy donkey dude and tries to winkle a gruesome goblin.
