The Kichen Ferry

P1010765When I was a little kid, before I learned to spell very well, I occasionally stayed up late or got up early to do little chores around the kitchen. Then I’d leave a note from the Kichen Ferry.

Kitty had this mini comic book out. From the style of the drawings, I think I was in high school when I made it. Thought you might enjoy this Supplement to Faeries by The (incredibly helpful) North American Kichen Ferry.


Kichen Ferrys rise before anyone in the household is awake.


Kichen Ferrys take great pride in their work.

They’be been known to wash dishes, wipe off counters, sweep floors & generally do pleasant things in kichens.


Kichen Ferrys take their tasks quite seriously & strive to succedd despite overwhelming odds.

(See the pig on top of the cupboard?  That’s the paper mache piggy bank I made in third grade. It’s my favorite part of all these drawings.)


There’s no telling how much work a Kichen Ferry will do if you stay in the bathroom long enough in the morning!

P1010770The conscientious Kichen Ferry leaves a note, so the inhabitants of the home won’t be frightened by her deeds.

(That the maple tree from the Hoosier Dawn post outiside the kitchen window behind her.)
