I first read The Scarlet Pimpernel in high school and have read it many times since. My friends and I enjoyed watching the 1982 screen version on multiple occasions, a movie I find to be something of a cult classic among the literary.
There are a thousand good lines to quip and quote from this book but I decided to stick with a basic rhyme which all who know of the Scarlet Pimpernel can easily quote from memory. Is there a more intriguing character in all of literature, one who is willing to play the fool for a greater good? Not many men would be willing to do this and that is one of the reasons I think Sir Percy is such an interesting and entertaining character. There are multiple depths to be explored with this book!
For my fellow Pimpernel fans, I give you this mug, featuring my original watercolor illustration of Sir Percy and his Marguerite. The mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, and is great for hot or cold liquids. It features a pink colored interior and handle and holds approximately 11 oz of liquid.
