Too Many Murkles
When you have a big problem, what do you do? Juliana, a clever little girl in Summerville just gets down and looks it in the eye.
Murkles are smelly creatures that no one wants around. However, these little stinkers head for Summerville every year. The townspeople form lines with the hopes of keeping them out, but when Juliana lets a baby murkle pass, something wonderful happens. She knows now to solve the problem, but the mayor may not listen to her. Murkles aren't the only problem in this small town, red firestars shoot up everywhere, and gray tanzas fly over people's heads. How will Juliana help solve these problems? Find out by getting a copy of TOO MANY MURKLES.
Beautifully detailed, full-color illustrations by Mary Gregg Byrne add a magical flair to Schmidt's fun and creative book that makes for an inspirational read. This reviewer and her children, ages, 13, 8, & 7, enjoyed every single page.
