for Hector Fuller
was a delightful pleasure meeting you on Wednesday and thank you
for visiting Washington Elementary in San Gabriel . We had many
visitors after school buying your books. I love Hector Fuller
and hope he has a VERY long and happy life. It was a great day
and your presentation deserves an A+!
Marino Toy and Book Shoppe
you for your outstanding presentations at Brookhaven Elementary
School . Your ability to hold the attention of so many children
in grades kindergarten to third is a testament to your skills
as a presenter. Your vast knowledge of your subject matter was
a tremendous asset once the question and answer session began.
The children walked away from the assembly highly motivated to
continue reading The Adventures of Hector Fuller ! You
were truly an inspiration to your audience and your response to
their letters was wonderful!
Brookhaven Elementary School
students listened enthusiastically while you read these books.
They visualized Hector and his friends, laughed at his predicaments,
and waited anxiously for each new chapter. Their thoughtful questions
and suggestions demonstrated a fondness for this lovable character.
Hector is a special guy!

Hector have teeth? I want to make a book when I grow up too. Do
you like bugs?

you for coming to my school. You are the best author I ever seen.
Could you come over my house sometime? I will ask my mom.
