WANTED: Dead or Alive!

Recently, Cassie had to complete a 'Wanted' posted for her Language Arts class. The poster was supposed to based off a book assessment the kids had to read. Cassie's book was titled, 'Down the Rabbit Hole'. Here's a synopsis of her book:
"Welcome to Echo Falls. Home of a thousand secrets, where Ingrid Levin-Hill, super sleuth, never knows what will happen next.
Ingrid is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or at least her shoes are. Getting them back means getting involved in a murder investigation rivaling those solved by her idol, Sherlock Holmes, and Ingrid has enough on her plate with club soccer, school, and the plum role of Alice in the Echo Falls production of Alice in Wonderland. But much as in Alice's adventures down the rabbit hole, things in Ingrid's small town keep getting curiouser and curiouser. Her favorite director has a serious accident onstage (but is it an accident?), and the police chief is on Ingrid's tail, grilling her about everything from bike-helmet law to the color of her cleats. Echo Falls has turned into a nightmare, and Ingrid is determined to wake up. Edgar Award–nominated novelist Peter Abrahams builds suspense as a smart young girl finds that her small town isn't nearly as safe as it seems."

Cassie's poster had to be about a character from her book. It needed to list a description of the character, what he's wanted for and what he did, along with a few other details.

She hand drew the picture and with the help of Mom, we stained the poster board and singed the edges to give it that 'old time' look.

I think she did a pretty fantastic job. I'm told it was one of the best ones. Go Cassie!
