Thanks for mentioning my podcast on your show :) You’re right, Mark, this book would be a perfect recommendation for my listeners. I just ordered myself a copy and can’t wait for it to arrive.

This is a great book! Sarah Ackerley is very talented as an artist and author. We had Sarah show her illustrations and read to kids at our gallery. The kids loved it! This was a few months ago and I still have parents telling me how much their kids love Patrick! Thank you Sarah for inspiring these kids…and Patrick, too! I’ll keep my eyes open for the new book…
