At the first keynote of the last SCBWI winter conference I sat next to a woman called Suzie Jean. We started talking, she was a very friendly librarian and writer and we exchanged cards. Immediately after the conference we emailed and she ordered both my books, Hugging Hour, and Bella & Bean and both my husband, John Rocco's books, Wolf Wolf!, and Moonpowder. Suzie read our books to the children of the school she works at and sent us the nicest emails with comments from the kids about each book and pictures from the readings.
How nice it that!
She wrote that when she asked the children: "What's your favorite part of this book?" They said: "All of it!"
I just want to say thank you to Suzie Jean!
