You must have had a really cool family since most of your stories are about what really happened to your family. My favorite book of yours is The Keeping Quilt. It is so sweet that your family made that quilt when they came to America. I have a necklace that my great grandmother gave me and I am going to pass it down to my daughter just like the quilt in your family. Sincerely, Pippi I wish you would come back to school. A girl like you should know how to read and do math. Your crazy stories would make wonderful books and I would like to teach you how to write. You can't be wild and free your whole life. You will have to get a job when you grow up and unless you go to school no one will hire you. So come back to school and we will help you learn the things you need to learn. Sincerely, School Teacher
