Ooo! Ooo! Can’t wait to see this book and to hear your review (I can’t listen in my current surroundings!). We featured an illustration from this book a good while back (on one of our Sunday lists). Love his art work. THANK YOU. Can’t wait to hear this.

I cannot wait to see this book! I was the picky eater in my family so maybe I can show my Mom (and husband) that I’m not just being a pain!

Also, just so you know, I am the tallest girl in my family – 6’0″ 😉

We picked up this book based on your podcast. My son, who justed turned 8, asked me to read it several times that first night. The pictures are beautiful and just the right amount of words were used! The book lead us to read more about the myth of the loch ness! Thanks so much! Love listening to your discussions!

By the way, I’m from Ottawa and would love to know what coffee shop you guys hang out it!
