Excellent BooksThe Circus Ship and several others.  Chris has won many awards for his books.
From His Life:  Chris used to draw as a young boy with his brothers.  Chris specialized in drawing robots, monsters, and aliens!  He has a yellow lab named Pearl and lives in Maine.

Advice for Aspiring Writers:    On his website, Chris advises that new writers do research and find out which publishing houses publish stories similar to yours.  He also comments on rejection: "Getting rejected by publishers is part of the game, but if you believe in your story, don’t give up."

Great advice! Rejection is part of writing. Every published writer received a lot of rejections at one point. It's kind of like an initiation, haha.

Good advice, and really good choice for the day's letter!

Laura, Thinking of it as an initiation is fun! If only it ended like an initiation!

Thanks, TheyCallMeVarmit!
