Another great how-to book
I received a letter from a 10-year-old about my book, How to Steal a Dog.
She enjoyed it.
But she wanted to point out a mistake in Chapter 12 (9th line) where I wrote, "He like to went crazy."
That line, of course, is Southern dialect and means, "He nearly went crazy."
Children (who don't live in the South) often think that is a mistake.
A great learning opportunity, I think.
But the best part of her letter was that my book had inspired her to write her own book.
How to Look Smart Without Being Smart
Now THAT I would read!!
