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.
