Mrs. Hornyak's second grade class at Cedar Grove Elementary in Germantown, Maryland recently read a lot of my books.
Q: How old are you?
A: I am older than you, and even older than your teacher, but I am younger than 100 years old.
Q: Is Tony from TONY'S BREAD real?
A: No. Tony is a character I imagined.
Q: Is Jeannie still your friend?
A: Yes, Jeannie is still my friend. She lives in Maine with her husband. Her husband is also my friend.
William's comment: Two thumbs up for your books, Mr. dePaola!
A: What? No toes? Two thumbs up and two toes up for your comment, William!
