Magdalena Hoopensteiner Wallendiner Hogan Logan Bogan Was Her Name; the nose-picking heroine's large, plastic ""googley"" eyes protrude from the cover. Arnold's wry take on the campfire favorite is that Miss Bogan, who could be considered freakish (""She had two eyes that were quite a sight; / One looked left and the other looked right""), is instead cheered on by family and friends who adore her oddities.
