A few weeks ago, a friend sent me an email regarding her 11-year-old son William, who was reading The Secrets of Mary Bowser during a family car trip. His comments during the ride included:
Mom, what does mellifluous mean?
Have you guys ever had or heard of pepperpot? It's a kind of soup.
Mom, what's a humidor?
This is a really good book.
Although it is usually considered inappropriate for a book reviewer to review a book by a friend, William made an exception and reviewed my novel. This video reflects his honest, unbiased comments. WARNING: Contains spoilers. And a cute little sister.
