Dippy Thumbs a Lift

by Richard Carpenter

Your great-grandfather will have still been wearing shorts when he was taken by his father to meet Dippy in his Hintze Hall home at the Natural History Museum. Dippy’s retirement means you cannot repeat this tradition. Dippy is ambivalent, as many who reach retirement are. In these pages you can read about his adventures, and his reaction to our world.

After two years of exploring the country, Dippy has had to take a break from his travels because of Covid. He rests in his packing cases until it is safe to be out and about again.

An idle moment for you to write about the carbon neutral world he wishes us to create for his return.
