Yesterday was not going well. The weather was terrible. I had a miserable migraine, and since I’m expecting I couldn’t take very effective medication. I went home from work before lunch, went straight to bed, and tried to sleep off my headache.

After 5 or 6 hours, when I felt better, my husband brought me a box the UPS man delivered… and suddenly I felt much, much better. I wanted to live again. Finally, after months of waiting, my very own copy of Four Fantastic Novels! At last, I found out what happed after the never-sufficiently-to-be-accursed Dove Audio version of Borgle ended!

Now I dream of reading your books to our Work-In-Progress, just to let him or her know the wonders of the literary world. Thanks, and thanks to your publishers as well!

Daniel replies:

Please read my work, and that of other children's authors to your onboard offspring, and report to us if there is any variation in response. Or response. Be brutally frank--I can take rejection from the unborn, (the only group that has yet to complain about my shortcomings).
