They're Talking About Me in Houston!

Peggy McFadden's third grade class at Hancock Elementary sent letters, drawings and questions.

Jaylon and many others: Do you have any advice for me to become a better writer?
Tomie: I do. Read, read, read.

Aniyah and many others: Does your dog help you write books?
Tomie: No. I wish he would.

Dasia and many others: Is it true you were four years old when you wrote your first book?
Tomie: It's a myth. I told everyone when I was four years old that I wanted to write stories and draw pictures for books when I got older.

Zachary and many others: Did people doubt you?
Tomie: My family never did.
