Since we are right in the middle of the summer writing contest, I want to choose a prize that is different from the writing contest prizes. It’s July, so . . . a Circle C hat to keep the sun out of your eyes sounds like a winner. To show you the hat really does work, here is my faithful model Ellie with their tobiano paint mare Lacey.

How well do you know Jenny Grant?

I have given you the name of the book (or short story) where you can find the answer to each question. And yes, you may look up all of the questions.
