The Pack Rat, er...Mouse?



"A man should keep his little brain attic stocked with all the furniture that he is likely to use, and the rest he can put away in the lumber-room of his library where he can get it if he wants it..."

The Baker Street Irregulars is a group of young street Arabs recruited by Basil of Baker Street to assist him in many specific cases, performing various missions, ferreting London for clues, and acquiring access to places where the detective could not go himself.

Norwood is "the mute who speaks without uttering a word." Being vocally wordless does not hinder or restrict him, by his whole style and nature so much the most deeply silent, but he distinguishes himself through pantomime. From the sunrise to sunset, he can respond and correspond in volumes as he is dependent almost entirely upon his use of expressions, whistles, winks, grunts, groans, yips, yaps, waves, gestures, signs, and visuals. With the blustering toots and rowdy honks of his rubber-bulbed bicycle-horn and his strange "soap-bubble" clarinet, Norwood speaks from his heart, soul, and spirit out of silence.

With a dusty coat and titian-plaid scarf, this cherub-faced, happy-go-lucky imp is an avaricious pack rat, er...mouse, who has pockets unerringly full of an amazing array of surprises. One could only guess what would come in or out of his cavernous sleeves. Here Norwood gleefully shows-off his "collection."

Jeez! When you said Norwood had lots of stuff in his pockets, you weren't kidding!
