Whirl Along with Us in the Globe

Inside the globe
How many glass orbs can you think of from the Bellairs and Strickland novels?
  • The green glass paperweight-thing of Prospero's (The Face in the Frost)
  • The snow globe Johnny sees first hand (The Hand of the Necromancer)
  • Does that crystal orb atop Mrs. Zimmermann’s staff count?
Elisabeth linked to images of snow globes created by Walter Martin and Pamela Munoz and rightly says they remind her of Bellairs's books and Gorey's illustrations.  Yes, indeed they do - and we'd love to see a series of globes with one representing each book.
