Dear Friends of Sparky,

Last month's events were great... Rosewood Elementary School and Larchmont Charter School, Barnes & Noble Metro Pointe!  Sparky Costume was a HUGE HIT!!! They took photos but haven't yet sent them to me, so unfortunately, I cannot include them in this newsletter or My Blog..

"The illustrations in Sparky the Wonderfish are a knock-out.  They have a childlike charm and simplicity and a luminescence.  This is a very sweet story that will appeal to a wide range of young readers, many of whom have been nose-to-nose with the feeder fish tank at the pet shop.  and the fact that this is based on a true story only makes it more appealing..."

President Obama has said he wants to invite groups of kids to The White House for children's book readings to help encourage literacy in the US. So I sent a Sparky the Wonderfish: A Story of How Love Creates Magic book and a letter to both President Obama and to The Honorable Al Gore, saying I am very interested in being a part of these efforts!

I got a letter back from the Honorable Al Gore, you can see it on My Blog, my hero knows my name!
