Everyone has their favorite characters (ask Lex about her crush on Ron Weasley;), and somehow, Sophi has become utterly enamored with Buckbeak the hippogriff. When they play act Harry Potter stories, she always tells Ron and Harry to "say hi to big Buckbeak!" I'm not sure exactly why this mythical creature has so captured her fancy, but she is very much in love with him.
This morning, Christi walked in on Sophi in her bedroom. Soph had a composition notebook in her feet and was reading: "The Legend of Buckbeak." This is a book that Sophi has written. Or maybe is still writing (it is a bit short). She had asked Christi to print out a picture of Buckbeak a day or two earlier and glued it in here herself:
For those of you who can't read Sophisian, let me translate:
It is nice.
It is fast.
And there you have the legend of Buckbeak. We have reached out to J. K. Rowling for a licensing deal. No word yet.
Love this girl!
