My favorite authors are Dan Gutman, Jeff Kinny, and Ron Roy.

I am very excited today because Dan Gutman responded to my email!

Thanks for the nice note, and for reading my books too. It is kids like YOU who inspire them. Sorry, it took me so long to get back to you. In answer to your suggestions, great minds think alike! I already wrote about a substitute teacher (“Ms. Todd Is Odd!”) AND a class pet (“Mr. Macky Is Wacky!”)

Tell all your friends at ***** ***** that I say hi, and keep reading lots of books…ESPECIALLY MINE!

Hi Dan Gutman,

My name is Savir and I am in 3’rd grade. Once you came to my school (***** ***** ********** ******) and I had lunch with you because I won the contest of making a cover for your book.

I was very glad to meet you at lunch and I talked about how nice and funny you are to all my family and friends. You gave me your email address so that I can send an email to you.

I have an idea for your book. You should make a substitute teacher for AJ. Also, I think you should make a class pet for AJ.
