Excerpts from adults -
"I heard words today to delight a librarian's heart. I overheard some of the upper elementary boys looking for their books to check out. Someone spied another kid with one of your books in hand and said, 'Hey, that is a really good book.' Another one said, 'Yeah, I read that and it was REALLY good.' I've never heard them say anything like that before.
— B. Barrick
"We have read many books, including The Chronicles of Narnia and nothing has captured our children's imagination as much as The Princess and the Goblins (by George MacDonald) UNTIL we read The Sword and the Flute."
— K. Davidson
"I gave The Sword and the Flute and Talis Hunters to my 12-year-old grandson who is a non-reader. Over Christmas, he had a school assignment to read a book and yours were at hand, so he started reading. My daughter could not get him to put them down. He loved them and would like some more."
— J. Armerding
"My wife read the books aloud and the other four of us listened. We really got a kick out of the first two books and found them more engaging than the popular Magic Treehouse children's books."
— D. Worthy
"One thing we really like about your books is that they appeal to everyone. Our boys as well as our girls are 'hooked' until the end. We do get a lot of groans and 'DON'T STOP NOW!' at the end of each chapter… All the kids are dying to know who kidnapped Jewels and how are they going to rescue her! Help…you can't just leave us hanging!"
— T. Muckelrath
"Well, you hit a home run with my grandson, Jonathan. He LOVES your books. So how did you say I can get the next in the series? He was so excited about the one in China too, as we are going there soon. Thanks!"
— J. Pollard
- Enthusiastic emails from young readers -
"I love your two books!! Are there anymore to the series? Please let me know, it will be great summer reading."
"P.S. You got Mom wanting to read your books!!"
"I think your books are awesome. The stories are really neat and interesting…Now that I've read the latest book, I can't stop now!"
"WOW! Your books are VERY interesting and you have written them VERY well. I couldn't help but read and read and read so I finished them in less than 48 hours! You ended the second book superbly and I can't wait to read the rest of the books."
"When's the next book coming out? I'm dying to find out! Your books are way too cool for this world! I bet the Martians would love your stories!"
"Your books have thrilled me ever since I first got my hands on them. The plots get thicker with every page. The characters are great. The morals are real and the actual books are funny. So I beg that you write more books in the Matterhorn the Brave series."
"I really liked the Matterhorn book. It was suspenseful and exiting, and had an end that makes you want to read the next one. I am 12 years old and love to read. I read the whole book in 2 hours. It was great!
