In the bit that was read out to us DWJ answered a question about something
she didn't explain fully in _Power of Three_. Very interesting.
Wow! I would love it if each of you would tell us more about what McKinley
and dwj had to say in these letters. Please? I think it's wonderful that
everyone at Kylie's party was excited to see the letter. Also, it never
occurred to me that kids would write laundry list letters for a grade - how
hateful for the authors! They seem to call for a form reply.
I've been thinking of writing dwj for some months now. I think I will do so
soon. Thanks to Sally for warning me on what to avoid! I am thinking I
will break the letter out into addressing different aspects of her books and
writing process.... What have others done?
