Kind words

June 7th, 2012

I’m b-a-c-k!  Did you miss me?  I’ve been on a trio of back-to-back trips, and am home again for a bit before I hit the road once more.  Busy summer ahead…

Before I tell you about my travels (look for more on that tomorrow), I want to share some lovely reviews of ONCE UPON A TOAD.  Thank you, bloggers extraordinaire!

Click here to read one from Hannah, and here to read another from Book Aunt (love that name!).  Texas librarian Pamela Thompson, YA reviewer for the El Paso Times, was generous with her praise:

“Clever, cute, quirky, and good clean fun, Once Upon a Toad delivers non-stop laughs and outrageous antics!”

Wow — thank you, Pamela!  (Click here to read the rest of her review.)

Flamingnet Teen Book Reviews loved it, too — click here to read what this 13-year-old reviewer had to say.  And check this out — Flamingnet selected my book for a “Top Choice” award!

I’m blushing from all the praise…

    Wow!!!! This is so exciting for you Heather!!! Congratulations on all of the good book reviews. From what I read in the first couple of chapters on your website, I can tell it is an absolutely amazing book- I just cannot wait to read it! 🙂

    I heartily agree with all the praise! I just bought it two days ago and I believe I have read it at least 5 times so far. It is a GREAT book!!!!! I really like how the flowers that came out of O.’s mouth were dependent on her mood. Like the narcissus when she was complaining about how she looked and the thistle when she was mad.

    Thank you so much, Mrs. Frederick for writing such a great book!
