More Mythical Beasts of the School Library
The school year has ended around here and books that haven’t been on the shelves since September have returned.
So forgive me for thinking I’m seeing things.
Hold on – is that a dragon?
Wait, no – it’s just the rarely spotted shelf full of Dork Diaries.
SHHH! I think I see a Griffin.
No! It’s something just as rare: a bunch of Princess in Black books on a shelf.
Alright – that’s a Minotaur.
Fooled again. It’s the never before seen shelf full of Dog Man books.
