Beatrix Black and the Lake of Mirrors
Well, you can't say I didn't warn you. But for those of you who still want to know more about Beatrix Black and the Lake of Mirrors, you've come to the right place.
There was nothing very exciting about Beatrix Black’s big, old, dusty mansion with the fat, juicy spiders lurking in the corners; nor was there much exciting about Beatrix Black, whose hair was just a little too black and whose eyes were uncommonly dark, and who didn’t quite fit in at Lost Souls Elementary School. Fortunately for Beatrix, she had Mimsy—her big, fat, black cat—and her books. Piles, upon piles of books—not of the excruciatingly dreary variety—but books that would allow Beatrix to momentarily escape the dull and dusty life she led at Black Mansion.
Then one day, Aunt Narcissa brings home a new book, Synonymous—a decisively odd book—which has some strikingly peculiar similarities to Beatrix Black’s dull and dusty life. So imagine how surprised Beatrix becomes when she discovers that the main character is a girl by the name of Beatrix Baleful, who has also become positively bored with her own dull and dusty life; she’s bored of the Black Mansion, the Wishing Witch, even of the Bat Family, and now she seeks a new adventure, a decisively more dangerous adventure, in which Beatrix Black has become dangerously intertwined.
