A woman approached me and said, “My Crazy Purple Pen. Where have I heard about that before? My daughter came home from school one day and she was writing all these stories about a crazy purple pen. I thought she’d made them up herself but it must have been from your book.”
I said, “Does your daughter attend the Lower School?
“Well, I did read this book to children at the school as part of an author Q&A session.”
“She must have really liked your book! She does love reading.”
I was so happy to hear that a child had enjoyed my book so much that they had gone home and written their own version of the story. That is the best compliment ever!
