I just LOVE getting these photos and emails from fans of A Dog's Way Home! This one came to me from South Carolina by way of a fellow librarian in Salt Lake City. I just love the totally absorbed expression on Kellie's face, don't you? That's the way every author hopes their readers will look!
Kellie's mom says:
"Kellie & I ran to the library to pick up holds. She ran in to get them for me & when she got back in the car she turned the radio down, pulled out Bobbie's book & started reading. After just a page or two she turned the radio off & read all the way home. She's hooked already. You know a book is good when a child is picking it up every spare minute. Kellie reads until she goes to bed & then picks it back up as soon as she's finished getting ready for school. She says that you need to tell Ms. Bobbie that she needs to write a series about Tam. I haven't asked for any details of the story since I want to read it too!"
I'm the author of The Dogs of Winter (Arthur A. Levine Books), A Dog's Way Home (Katherine Tegen Books) and The Ring (WestSide). I'm a long-time book lover, and a passionate dog person. I live in the high country of the Utah mountains with my husband, three dogs, and two cats. Life is sweeeet!
