Dear Barbra reid I think that I may want to be a writer and ilasterater when I grow up because working with plastercine everyday, and writing must be awsome. my favorite book so far , of what i have read by you, is the party! i think it was the greatest book that you have written.At school we made outer space plastercine picttures.It was awsome.

keep up the good work!
