Miss Mabel: An introduction of Penelope's favorite librarian

Miss Mabel

Likes: Beautifully illustrated children's books. Winnie the Pooh is a favorite. She took an instant like to Beatrice.

Thistles though some would call it a weed and not recognize the flower

Desert for breakfast, but what is pie and whip cream meant for.

Dislikes: Idle chatter

Poor grammar, though on further thought one could argue this as another form of idleness.

Author's personal note: Miss Mabel is loosely based of my grandmother Mabel. She sparkled with a natural wit and I will never forget our nature walks. She could make weeds a thing of beauty. She was also the person to teach me Shakespeare.
