| I am so excited that your Runaway Dragon book is finally coming out!|
My younger daughter checked Runaway Princess out of her school library when she was in second grade. It was a little difficult for her to read so I started reading it to her. Then I had to keep reading it to her because I didn't want to miss a thing...and my older daughter would snuggle up with us and listen, too, because she didn't want to miss a thing! We all greatly enjoyed your way with words and expressions. My best memory is during the battle scene we were all laughing until our stomachs hurt, and we still couldn't stop laughing. We were laughing so hard we could hardly make it through those pages.
You ruined my daughter though! For a couple weeks she wouldn't read because nothing was as good as Runaway Princess!!!
She is going to LOVE starting her fourth grade year with your new book.
I have told many, many people about your book....girls AND boys....and non-kids!
