I was asked to be Muriel for our school's Literacy Scholar activity last Friday.  The students who attended didn't know it was me, except for one fifth grader who recognized my voice.
I lost my gnarly rope and Home Depot was out of it at two different stores. So I just purchased wimpy rope.

Muriel and I go back six years. On Halloween, when Julie was in 4th grade, I was Muriel for her school halloween party. I liked dressing up as a witch and having blond hair was a nice change. Julie and her sisters really enjoyed reading the Fablehaven books so I got hooked. 

I hope the books turn into a movie series someday. 

Brandon Mull is quite the gifted writer. At least the Carlson home thinks so.
