April is School Library Month


For the record, I totally thought Max sailed the boat to the wild things. Still do.

I don't know if you're reading this, but I saw a recommendation of Everybody Sees The Ants on Goodreads.com, and decided to give it a try. I just want to thank you for writing such a wonderful book! I was up till 2 in the morning to finish it. And I've never shouted out in glee ever before while reading about someone getting beaten up !I suggested it to all my friends. It was a wonderful book. Thank you so much

Thank YOU so much for letting me know! I appreciate the kind words and I apologize for your lack of sleep. :)

I always found it interesting that Lucky isn't as happy about the beating as we all were. But I think Lucky just wants peace, generally, so it seems right for him to hope Ronald doesn't hurt Nader too badly.

Again--thanks for letting me know!

I was curious, what was Lucky's father's reaction when Lucky explained the whole 'Dreams materealize' thing ?

A.S. King said...

Hi Ronaldo. Well, that's a complicated question. The idea of why I write is to give the reader enough information in order to speculate the answer to questions like this. I'd like to think that Lucky's dad sat there and listened. Lucky had the most convincing evidence--his grandfather's ring--so what else could his father do but listen?
That's how I think of it anyway.
In the end, what really matters is: Lucky and his dad had a conversation on Lucky's terms. I hope it brought them closer. I hope it healed some wounds.

Thanks for replying, I don't know its showing my name as Ronaldo, its Sanket, the same previous person :)
It did answer my question. Id like to think that maybe Lucky somehow took his father along with him in a dream to finally bring him some closure about his father :)
Again, thanks for replying so quickly and making it more than 140 characters. Not a lot of authors do that :)
