On Monday afternoon I returned home to a bundle of emails
from students at a primary school I will be visiting very soon.
They all warmed my heart and once again, reminded me of why 
I write for children. Thank you children.
Here are a few of them (creative name-spelling included).

'Hi Correine, We like Flame stands waiting its a good book and 
we would have crowned it the best children's book.'

Dear Corinne Fenton, We love your two books 'Queenie & 
Flame stands waiting... we read both of these books at school.
these books have real things in it, 
ex:Queenie is a real elephant,
and flame stands waiting is in Luna Park! These books are wonderfull
and touching. we cant wait for you to come to our school!

Dear Corrine, I love the book "flame still waiting" 
it is the best book ever!!!!! 
Also queenie was awesome you're a great writer 

Dear Corinne
I love the books you make.'
