“Michelle kept the students engaged and excited about the writing and illustration process. . . We would be honored to have her visit us again in the future.”

- Jodi Anderson, Librarian

"Her insight and enthusiasm (were) absorbed throughout her presentation. . . Our students have been inspired by her pinkie promise to always do their best, work hard, and to follow their dreams. Bob (and) What If Monster are very popular critters during library check out times and are often hugged (and) carried around. Michelle’s talent of sharing her passion is truly a special gift.
