Toad treats

Are these adorable or what?!

Toad treats

I had a Skype visit this afternoon with a delightful group of moms and daughters from Iowa, and LOOK what they made for treats in honor of my book ONCE UPON A TOAD!

That’s the only drawback to videoconferencing — I miss out on all the treats. Β πŸ™ Β These are some of the most hilarious and wonderful I’ve ever seen. Β Toads made out of kiwi, grapes, and dried plums? Β On lettuce leaf lily pads? TOO CUTE!

    By the way, I am reading “Emma” by Jane Austen and noticed that Emma starts rumors about a girl named Jane Fairfax. I wondered if it was any coincidence about Sophie Fairfax, plus I knew that Emma in the MDBC was named after one of Austen’s characters. =-)

    Love, Emily

      Aha, Emily — you discovered one of the “hidden secrets” in the MDBC series! It’s not a coincidence at all. πŸ™‚ Sharp eyes!

    • Emily says:

      πŸ˜€ Ohmigosh! I also noticed someone with the last name Fairfax in Jane Eyre, as well – what a popular last name! πŸ™‚

    There is Alice Fairfax the housekeeper at Thornfield Hall in Jane Eyre… I noticed Sophie was introduced in #6- while the MDBC was reading Jane Eyre and Annabelle in #4 when they were reading P&P… did you do this on purpose or did you pick out the last name “Fairfax” before knowing about Sophie. Sorry…. this may be confusing sorry πŸ˜‰

    • heathervogelfrederick says:

      Yep, did that on purpose, Cassie! πŸ˜€

      • KatieTheObsessed says:

        So was Cassidy’s last name random, or was it the last name of characters from Anne of Green Gables on purpose…

        • heathervogelfrederick says:

          It was actually random. Is there a Sloane in AGG? I’d forgotten! How clever of me to do that ha ha.

          • KatieTheObsessed says:

            And did Mrs. Chadwick dye her hair in the “Whole new me” thing, because in 1 & 2 it was brown and in 3 it is blond.

          • heathervogelfrederick says:

            Yes! That was part of her makeover… πŸ˜€
