Instagram LifeHappy New Year! 🎉 I spent the first day of 2020 plotting out my year and lots of hard work and interesting challenges are on the horizon. I've decided on a publishing date for The Case of the Golden Mushroom. I'm going to redo some illustrations and the cover and release it October 2020! Mildred is the villain of the story, but I love her smarts, her drive and her daring. I've done a few posts of Mildred before, but the year of the mouse is Mildred's year to shine! . 🦔 . #thecaseofthegoldenmushroom #thegreatmushroomdetective #hedgehogs #midlredtrevorthornes #mushroommysteries #2020goals #middlegrademystery #mushrooms
