This particular comic strip on The Tale Of Despereaux looks at Chiaroscuro from Book The Second. Chiaroscuro's friend convinces him to torture a prisoner. Then, suddenly, some light gets through. All rats HATE light but, Chiaroscuro doesn't seem to mind it.
I will torture him.
Hey! Roscuro! Your time has come! A prisoner has come in!
THE SLIVER OF LIGHT
AH! I love the light!
AH! THE LIGHT! LOOK AWAY!
I absolutely LOVE the sweet light!
NO Roscuro! RATS DO NOT LOVE LIGHT! THEY HATE IT!
How........ RUDE..... of them! Why would the let in SO much light?
