This review was an absolute treat for me. I know that Santiago Cohen, the wonderful illustrator of my book, was also delighted to hear it. Thank you – we’re so appreciative. Your comment about the pronunciation guide is helpful – I’m going to work on that. I have included pronunciation in my second book (“The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred” (Charlesbridge, Fall 2010)). I wanted to give you a peek at our book trailer. http://tinyurl.com/beforeyouwerehere
All best, Samantha
