I mean us. We wrote the book.
Yeah. Feel the envy.
Anyway, much to our surprise the girls absolutely adored the book. An encouraging response to say the least considering we didn't know if it would appeal to girls. The crazy voices may have helped a little. So far, in fact, we've gotten nothing but overwhelmingly positive feedback on the book. I got through the first five chapters and after each one they were dying for more.
Not that I poisoned their drinking water or anything... look! See? They were fine!
Just look at 'em! They were so ecstatic that their faces pixelated! What? Kids' faces do that, right? If not, someone might wanna get some doctors down there... might be contagious.
All in all it was a blast and I.G.G.S. has asked me back for more readings, so I'm off to brainstorm more horrible things that I can do to them. Gotta be memorable!
EDIT: Apparently there was another, far larger scale book reading even I didn't know I'd done.
