Your daughter has good taste!

I love the one picture of her ginormous buck teeth. She’s an adorable gal.

Marked on my calendar! Molly Lou Melon is one of the greatest characters of all time. Give Patty a huge hug for introducing her to the world!

I will. I will. She is doing a book signing on October 27th at the Book Revue in Huntington Long Island at 11:00.

I sent her this blog post today. Maybe she will comment here later when she arrives home from teaching her first graders…Li z

I love Molly Lou Melon!!!! Such a great message, and a fun book to read with my daughter Molly. I had no idea the author was local – I will mark my calendar and be at the book signing in Huntington.

Really sweet without being sickly which is a hard thing to do in these jaded times. Thanks for that – a real treat!

Hands down one of our household’s most beloved books (and not just because we have our own Molly who has a very similar personality to Molly Lou Melon’s). David Catrow’s illustration style fits the personality of Miss Molly to a tee and the story practically forces you to smile the entire time you’re reading it.

Every Molly I know is a gem. Yours sounds delightful!
