Got a nice letter from Lynn Johnston the other day. You may not know her by name (cartoonists have a way of remaining anonymous – how many of you know what Bill Watterson looks like?), but I’m sure you’ve seen her strip, For Better or For Worse. She had some nice things to say about my book. She thanked me for sending her an advance copy and said,
"I wasn’t prepared for it to be so good! You write well and the subject matter is so appropriate. It’s obvious you have been thinking about this for a long time…One good thing about being a cartoonist is with minds like ours, it’s IMPOSSIBLE to grow up! I don’t intend to – despite my age."
Thanks, Lynn. I appreciate the kudos. And keep up the excellent job sharing the Pattersons with the world.
