"My name is Angel and I am writing to thank you for taking time to read and tell us about yourself and giving us a signed copy of your book Ghost Walk.  To be honest, I don't read much mystery stories but I still enjoyed your book because it's interesting.  Something about me is that I also love to read and write stories.  I even wrote a movie script called Falling Down.  I've been planning to get an agent and actually release the books and movies I write.  I would like to be you someday.  A question I have for you is who inspires you to write the stories you write?  I also have a suggestion and that is to maybe make your characters a little more funnier like make them jumpy, you know what I'm saying.  Please write back.

Dear Mrs.Awad,

 

Those books were SO AWESOME  I red all of them in three days. Once I started them I didn't want to stop. I liked it when I found out that Marry Yarrow wasn't Marigold and that Abigail Peedgid was really her that was so thrilling.Honestly after I got those books at Art in the Park I was ready to go home and start reading. I LOVED the books I was sad when I finished Dig Deep because there was no more Greenhouse Kids to read.

The students will be busy writing their thank you notes over the next few school days.  From there we will get them to the sponsors.  Again, thank you for sharing your love of writing with our students.  Perhaps there were some aspiring authors in the group, as their questions and interest certainly indicated that this may be the case.

And another thank you for sparking the love of reading in Adam by visiting his school.  He has read all of your books (including the lower level ones that he reads to his 6 year old sister).  My older son always had a love of reading but Adam resisted until your books and clearly he is passing that love on to his younger sister as well.

Thank-you so much!!   My son has thoroughly enjoyed both your book and the game.   In fact, his class is doing a Science unit on Plants and Flowers and after he mentioned a few "unusual" plants like Virginia Creeper and Hollyhocks, his teacher asked him to bring in his book and make a little presentation.   He was so proud!   We are eager to read your 2nd and 3rd books now.   David really loved playing the game.   Even my 3-year-old loved looking for the hidden items.   David only wished there were more plants and areas to unlock.   Thanks again for the opportunity to try it out.

Dear Mrs. Awad

 

I love the book that you made.   It is like the best book I ever had.   It has a lot of adventures in the story and my favourite part was that when Holley was playing dress up with her dog.

Dear Shelley Awad,

 

I like your books so much and I like how you named the characters after flowers.   I also like how you make them look like the flower they are.   You made a mystery book.   Good thing mystery books are my favourite kind of book.   I did not know that you were going to make mystery books and I really did not know that you were going to be the author at the school's amazing library.

 

PS. I loved the book.

 

Sincerely,

Dear Shelley Awad,

 

Thanks for everything.   I loved everything about my new book.   As soon as I got home, my sister (that is in grade 5) stole the book, jumped on my couch, and read.   After half an hour, I looked and she was on page 100! She loves your books too!   Me and Rudy really want to write a book and give a new free copy to you.   I read your book one time already and I want to read it again!

 

So thanks a lot!!   J

Thank you for the book that you gave us. I am so looking forward to it.  I enjoyed the presentation that you did for us.  I really like the chapter books, especially Scooby Doo books.  The books are really really funny to read because they make you laugh.  They are so so so so so cool to read to myself.  I hope I get all of it done so I can start reading your book.  I hope I can get reading it after Halloween night.

Thank you,

Dear Mr. Awad,

I've been reading the book Dan Delion's Secret. Thank you for buying me the book. I'm definitely getting the second book because I liked adventure books.  So far, you are my favourite author.

Dear Mrs. Awad
 
We wisht o thank you for taking the time tio visit our school.  We were happy to learn about your Greenhouse Kids series, and look forward to reading the next books in the collection.  Will says that he is going to read Dan Delion's Secret right away, then get the next books in the series, and then read them all again!
 
Many of us agree that editing is our least favourite part of writing, so we were surprised to learn that you edited your book eighty-five times!  We learned from this that our own writing can always be improved.
 
We were inspired by your niece's story.  It shows that if we're willing to work hard enough, we can overcome any obstacle.
 
After your visit, we had a few questions.  When did you start writing?  Do you think your writing inspired your niece to write?  When we considred which genre your books are, we began to wonder what is your favourite genre?
 
Thank you againf or presenting your wonderful books to our classes.  You rock!
 
Sincerely,

"Dear Mrs. Awad,

Hello, thanks for giving me the free book and the book mark.  I liked the cover. My favourite kind of book is a book with colour.

My favourite part of the book was the part you read, I have no idea what part it was.  My second favourite part of the book was when the Greenhouse Kids discovered there was someone living in the house.  My favourite character is Johnny Jump-Ups.

I brought the book to the hospital when I broke my elbow.  When I was bored I read the whole book. I'm happy you came to visit our school.  I think some of the pictures are funny.

I am also thankful for the visit because if you didn't present your book I woul not understand the book.  I am grateful for the book mark and I use it all the time.  My favourite character is Johnny Jump-Ups.

That is why I am grateful for you giving us a free book! I enjoyed it because it is a mystery book.  That is why I am grateful for the book!

Thank you so much for coming to our school.  I am so thankful that you gave us a free book.  Also, you gave us a free bookmark that has the books cover on it.

Their are so many things that I love about your book.  Three things I love about the book are first all the characters have flower names.  Second their are lots of expressions in the book.  Third the character Dan has bright, bright yellow hair.

Once again, thank you so much for giving as a book and also a bookmark.  Again, thank you.

"Dear Mrs. Awad,

Thank you for the nice book.  When I read the book I never knew there were plants called Holly Hocks, Johnny Jump-Ups, Fox Gloves, and Virginia Creeper but of course I knew a Dan Delion.

My favourite part of the book was when Dan Delion found the greehouse. That was my favourite part because he found out about Lucinda the Ladybug.

That's why I'm thankful that you took the time to come to our school and give us your book.  The Greenhouse Kids Dan Delion's Secret. Thank you again.

Sincerely,

Eric.

P.S. I like the pictures.

Dear Mitch Awad,


Hello, thanks for giving me the free book. I really liked it. Why did you spend money on me you don't even know me?  Thank you, I was running out of books to read.


Do you like Big Bang Theory? I do! I think it's the best show ever.  I watch it all the time.  If you haven't heard of it, the channel is A&E.  Did you know that 11.11.11 only happens once every 100 years.  You'd have to be old to be alive to see that twice.


Thank you again for buying the book for me.  Please write back.


From,


Holden
