                        I read your book over two days- and I have two young kids! I found it so moving. I was totally transported into the worlds created by this magical author.

                        I was so impacted by the prose at one point I stopped reading to find out – who is this author who can create like Ben Okrie?

                        I used to dream of writing a book like this – thank you for bringing it into this world.
