A few more favorite quotes:
“I like to be a Tricia and a illlustrated.”
“If I see my big brother bullyin on my little brother I will tell him this author name, Mrs. Stringstubb.”
“When you talked I felt like I wanted to bee a Author. But it’s hard to pick from all the jobs I want. I’m going to tell you. A peteyochrishen, dancer, singer, songwriter.”
“I really like your books!!!!!!!! Hope you win a reward. I believe in you. Make me proud.”
