What People are Saying...

Hi Melissa - I finally got a good shot of Daisy with one of my students who was reading Emmitt's book... check out Daisy's blog entry 9/28/07. We had so much fun reading it and have been doing the workbook too.  It's perfect for my students and they LOVE reading a book about another pug!!!  I let him take the ABC book home to show his sister for the weekend because he liked it so much!   Big pug hugs from Switzerland, Lex & Daisy

Hi, Melissa. I just wanted you to know that my first graders absolutely loved your books, WHY AM I SPECIAL? and EMMITT & OLIVE. As a matter of fact, another teacher saw WHY AM I SPECIAL? in my classroom and asked to borrow it to read to a particular third grader who needed a little confidence boost. Then just today, I caught one of my first graders reading EMMITT & OLIVE during silent reading time. She got half way through today and asked for a sticky note to mark her place until tomorrow’s silent reading time when she plans to finish the story. You see, she was sick/absent on the day I’d read it to the class and had been very disappointed when she returned and found that she’d missed out. Luckily, she’s an advanced reader so she can read it independently. The children were mesmerized by the illustrations in both books. You did a wonderful job of capturing the dogs’ emotions in their faces! Thank you. It was a pleasure meeting you and sharing your books. Roselyn M., RI

Hi Melissa, I just wanted to let you know that the story book "Emmitt and Olive" is wonderfully written and illustrated.  I read it to my niece and nephew last month and they thought it was great.  They especially liked the pictures of Emmitt.  I think they want a pet Pug for themselves.  Instead of a real one, I made them a large stuffed animal dog to play with while reading your book.
