Editor and Writer

My six year old nieces favorite part of the book was when the character finally succeeded at his task, and he "felt like a big, strong elephant, breaking the rope that had held him back." I am confident that image will stay in her mind for a long time, empowering her to work through hard times to emerge even stronger than before!
