Wendy Orr, Canadian-born Australian writer, was kind enough to give some of her time to read my book and share her thoughts with me on it. Her own books for children and adults have been published in 27 countries and won awards around the world. Nim’s Island (pictured above) and Nim at Sea have also become feature films, starring Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin (Nim’s Island) and Bindi Irwin (Return to Nim’s Island.) Her latest book is Dragonfly Song, a novel in free verse and prose of an outcast girl who becomes a bull-leaper in Bronze Age Crete.
Myself and my children love Wendy's work and I would thoroughly recommend you check it out! I was so thrilled when she agreed to read my book and provide feedback.
Wendy gave me some very helpful advice and within that she wrote, "Dear Aimee
Thank you very much for your book. You have a lovely rhythm and the stories are very sweet; I can imagine that my 1 year old granddaughters will enjoy them soon. (One has a rabbit called Kitty who is never far from her side.)...you can certainly write...All the very best for your future writing.
