  1. Wow. I wonder how old the bookplate is, and I wonder what became of Muriel.......

  2. Isn't that just adorable.

    Muriel must have loved her book.

    The cover is wonderful, I can't find anywhere that gives a clue to what the book is about. I know it's a novel, it is a young children's novel?

  3. Did you notice the picture on the book appears to be a griffin -- just like Muriel's last name?
