Feedback from E. B. McHenry

Wow! We received an email yesterday, out of the blue, from E. B. McHenry, author and illustrator of Poodlena. She stumbled on our review A Lesson for me: Poodlena and sent the following to us:

Hello Just One More Book!

I love your podshow! What a great idea. I particularly enjoyed your review of Poodlena. I am E.B. McHenry and I want to say Thank You for such a thoughtful review. The book Poodlena does play with and is a response to all the extreme girly girl images.

And your daughter was absolutely right, Poodlena isn’t doing the primping her master is a whole other sub text! Thank you for choosing Poodlena for review, I wish all of Poodlena’s reviews were so insightful!

Have you been to ? Do see the fabulous Poodlena Poodle Parade through Berkeley, CA and meet me, E.B.!

Again many thanks,
E.B. McHenry

E. B. McHenry has agreed to an interview. We will let you know when that comes about.
