And you won’t even have to buy me lunch!

The kids haven’t stopped talking about your visit. The greatest benefit for us, being a small school, was that we could “bring in” an author of your caliber easily without having to justify a large expense. You far exceeded our expectations, and they were high to begin with.

You were BRILLIANT! The atmosphere you created in that room of 9- and 10- year-olds was that of a rock concert. The excitement and energy were palpable. Those students walked out of my classroom nothing short of giddy. (So did their teacher.)
