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
home to show his sister for the weekend because he liked it so
much! Big pug hugs from Switzerland, Lex & Daisy
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.

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. Julie F., MA
