Got your book in the mail Friday night & read it yesterday morning with breakfast instead of the newspaper. (I have to say it was a real step up from the newspaper. I’m beginning to think the articles in the paper make the cut based on their shear ability to depress. I’m not Pollyanna, but something a least modestly hopeful would be nice…) And then, your book arrived. It’s been years since I actually sat down and read a children’s book and I really think I’ve been missing out. Thanks. I’d forgotten how important the visual element is. It’s a bit like watching movies made before sound, every element tells the story.
Anyway, I really liked it, both the pictures and the story. And the red van is cheery. I really liked Cassie. Hope the series a magnificent success (sales wise)… story-wise I think you’ve already got it made.
