That is beautiful art, and the colour really sets it off.

Wow, that is stunning. Is there any chance of the rest of the pages?

The last three pages were just as beautiful as the first page. Thanks for sharing.

I’m glad you liked this. I think all the Tourret sisters are very underrated. The only one to achieve widespread recognition, as far as I know, was Pat Tourret for the newspaper strip Tiffany Jones. Apart from this and their limited work for comics, I think most of their other work was in book illustration.

There seems to have been a kind of family style common to all three – precise, painstaking, elegant, and with a serene, rather static quality to the faces. But as Philcom said, there were significant differences as well, and for my money Gwen was the best – warmer and more spontaneous. This story shows her at her most expressive, I think.

I am looking for a very similar story but it is where twin sisters were separated with different parents. They meet at a camp site later on and switch places. This was also in a Bunty Comic issue (full story in comic). I think the movie Parent Trap is either based on this comic or the other way around. However I can't find the Comic title.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

I've not come across this story, either in Bunty or any other girls' comic.

I see that there was a comic book version of the original Parent Trap movie, produced in the USA by Dell Comics. Probably a dumb suggestion, but could this possibly be what you had in mind?
