Zara was a quarkbeast (see the very excellent The Last Dragonslayer series by Jasper Fforde if you want more background info) and Amity was Murray, a little bat with a very big heart from Cynthia Rylant's Gooseberry Park (and it's sequel). Both kids went literary, and both suggest you read the respective books that inspired their costumes.

We spent a marvelous long weekend in the Poconos with our dearest friends the MMs. The older 3 in this picture have been friends since they were 3, 1 and 1 and the youngest member doesn't remember life without the other three. Sadly, however, she also doesn't remember how wonderful it was to have these lovely Canadians as our neighbors for a good 4 years. But we keep the dream alive and reunite every so often, and all is right with the world when we do.
