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?
