As an illustrator, I just love it when kids feel a connection to the characters in my books. The highest praise I could ever receive came today when Ania Kelly sent me this photo of her adorable daughter wearing a custom outfit and dressed up like Emma from my recent title "Did You Hear: A Story About Gossip." I was absolutely floored! She looks AMAZING! Big hugs and a high five go out to this little girl for sending me this memory as we close out 2017!
