    I have a collection of 10 stories written for about a third grade level, according to a teacher friend who read them. The stories are the various adventures of a brother and sister visiting the sea shore for the summer. I would love to send them to you for a look-see and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hmm, I’d really like to submit my picture book to Jodell, but I’d better read some of her books first. That would be embarrassing if she was like, “you made mistakes number 2, 5, and 10 that are all described in detail in this great book here.”
