Miss Mabel: An introduction of Penelope's favorite librarian
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.
