"Got your book. It's quite nice, and I liked it. My wife Kathy RAVED. She said she's very discerning and often critical of children's books but that this one captured her...the lesson, the character, and the presentation. She said it didn't have that ultra-modern smugness. It's hit-you-over-the-head lesson-learning stuff. She really thinks it should be sold. I had no idea what to expect. This is very nice; you need to be proud!"
~ Gary J. Introne, Poet, NJ
