The first response to the book comes from Madden, 5 years old. When your readers are young, you get the sweetest responses.
“You are so cool and nice,” Madden writes, “I love your book. Thank you.”
You may recall seeing Madden on my blog before. His mother, Julia, allowed us to publish her review of Myrtle the Purple Turtle, and here are Madden and younger sister Kenzie, reading that book a year ago.
Madden, now 5 years old, loves both soccer and turtles, his mother says, and perhaps that explains the immediate response to the book. He also plans to be either a pro soccer or hockey player, and a songwriter.
