Jack is a fifth grader at St. Joseph Catholic School in Fort Collins, Colorado: When I read your book, COUNTRY ANGEL CHRISTMAS, I really liked how you made Christmas and love feel. I especially liked the book because it showed three little children can be big in God's image. My favorite character was Pip; I compare myself to Pip because of his chattiness, creativity, and curiosity.
I also enjoyed THE CLOWN OF GOD. I liked the Italian setting and culture of this story. It really showed how you can make Jesus happy with just the littlest things, which is something I like a lot. I know I can relate to Giovanni because we both like to make people laugh and show hints of persistence.
Tomie: Thank you, Jack, for the kind and thoughtful letter.
