Twingor’s Tale

Chapter Four: Guin’s House

They could run, but they could not hide. My wolfish snout pointed out their trail better than any signpost, so following them was simple. And because the journey between houses isn’t covered directly by the story of the three little pigs, making it to the island didn’t even prove to be a problem, despite having been unable to swim across the hedgehog’s moat just moments before.

My first impression of the island wasn’t favorable. The landscape was lush with life and vegetation. To make matters worse, while I had a sense of the form of my quarry’s house, I had difficulty discerning it against the backdrop. It was as if the house itself jumbled my sense of order in some fashion.

Eventually, however, I was able to make out the house – well disguised, but distinct from its surroundings.

Question: When you rearranged the tangram into the shape of a house, what landscape is revealed? Who painted it?
