My friends sent me this delightful photo of their kids reading my new book.
We do so take the wonders of the Internet for granted – one click and a book ordered from America can very soon be read by a brother to his sister in Greece.
It’s worth noting that young Michael’s English, his second language, is so good that he immediately queried the title, and asked why it’s not: “Are You Talking To Me?”.
Bless him – that lad is sharp. His parents explained the shades of meaning, and the ways in which tone and inflection can affect the interpretation of the title’s question.
I love that Nelly’s hanging on to every word and how much her brother is enjoying the opportunity to impress his little sister.
