    • Anne Geisel – I love the different tones of your characters and you are so good at dialogue.  Remember, I expect you to become Dr. Seuss Jr. someday!
    • Emmalani de Guzman – Your voice is awesome.  I also really like your style of writing, especially your A10!
    • Isaak Jones – I greatly enjoyed your squirrel story, as well as your aura of mystique.
