Halloween!

Halloween always brings out the witch in me. I’ve told Halloween stories in schools, libraries, Rec Centers, city events, Red Butte Gardens and special Halloween shows. It’s one of my favorite seasons and I love pulling out some of my Halloween characters and bringing them back to life each year like Goblin and Hildegaard. The picture above is from a visit to a first grade class. At the end I told them I needed to leave to go work on a new potion and they seemed to believe I was a real witch. At another elementary school I did a new story about Mortimer the Mouse. It was a handkerchief story and I made a mouse that could run up my arm with the handkerchief as I told the story. I had everyone helping me call “Mortimer” as I told the story.
