Today I visited Ms. Thomas' fifth and sixth graders at Washington Elementary. What a great time! They knew so much about the book and the places in it. I especially loved hearing about their favorite parts and characters (it seemed Jiwan and Fritz were very popular as was the part of the worms coming out of the rog's face.) I also want to thank them for the lovely notes and pictures. It is so wonderful to be able to share a story with readers who enjoyed it so much.
Good luck to all of them as they write their own stories. I hope to hear from them by e-mail through my site!
