  11. Dear carol, why ave u not responded to me. I weated a long time alredy.Please can u answer my questons?

  12. Rosaria,
    Sorry that you think I am slow to respond. This is a very busy time of year for me. I reply to letters, emails and blog comments twice a week. My writing gets first priority always, otherwise I’d never finish a book.
    Well done for getting your reward. And Happy Birthday.
    I am coming to Canberra next month. I won’t be doing any school visits, but I am doing a signing a bookshop. When the details are finalised I will post a blog about it.

  13. Thankyou Carol I reall apriciated.I am very happy.Oh and I wold like to ask a very simple question(well no)but are u writing a new BOOK!If u are congratulations and I hope it will get published.oh and one more thing……………….
    TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY!I am very exited and on friday I am having a slumber party with my 2 best friends Kelly and Evie.I have been planing this for a month or two nd I put my best effort on it because these are the real best friends that I want.Not like the mean and unsupportive ones at my old school lyons primary.
    I hope u have a good time but now I have to go. I need to print out some lyrics to a song for my friend Eddie.So then…

  14. ops!Oh and everytime I say ops.It means I did a spelling or tiping mistake,or I forgot to say something.

  15. Dear Carol,
    If u are an animal lover like me,I suggest(and u don’t need to do it)you should write a book on endangered animals.I got this idea just today so I thought I wold just tell u.This idea is about pandas.You should write about their life before the humans started to kill them,and then the life after humans started to kill them.You can also write about the beautiful wales.I also sugest that the pandas idea should be written in a picture book.The wales one can also be too but I think it is better the way that u always write.No picures.U don’t need to follow this advice.If u will I will be very happy.

    A girl with good advice always help.That is what my friends always say to me.

    Alway hear to give u some tips helpfully from Rosaria.

  16. Rosaria,
    Thanks for those suggestions. I have plenty of ideas for books at the moment though.
    I am currently writing a book, but it is too early to talk about it yet. I am a bit superstitious about talking about books when they are in the early stages. I think it will be bad luck and they won’t go well.

  17. Ok,I am so sorry but if u need any tips or advice(if these two words are different)just text me Right hear on your blog.Oh and I asked mrs.Hughes,
    (my school’s librerian)(if that is how you spell it)to add on the dragonkeeper triology books for book week(this week)and guess what se said…..
    …..YES!I mean she said YES!I hope u are happy about it.

  18. Dear carole,
    Have u got the details of when that bookshop signing is.I am going crazy about it!
    Text me later.

  19. Oh and is today daffodil day?
    I don’t really know?
    Can u tell me what this day is about?
    Please text me later.

  20. Dear Carole,
    I never had known that u wrote Black snake.
    Did u know that this book is in book week?

    I hope u are happy about it.

    Regards Rosaria

  21. I mean three of youre books & sorry if I text too many xo I did not know it wold be long.U can cancellet(if that is how u spell it) later

  22. Rosaria,
    Yes I’m very pleased that my books are going to be in your school library.
    Yes I knew that it was book week last week. I did school and library visits, which is why I’m behind on answering blog comments.
    No I don’t know the details about the bookshop visit yet. As soon as I do I will do a blog about it.
    No I cannot tell you what Daffodil Day is about. This isn’t a general information website! Try googling it.

  23. Hey carol,
    I followed your suggestion on gooGling what Daffodol day means,and it worked.Hear is what it is.PS.I copied and pasted this from the website and added(well changed)some words.
    What is Daffodil Day?
    Daffodil Day is the largest fundraising event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the day of the year. some people invite all Australians to unite and lend their support to the fight against cancer.

    It is also a day to celebrate the spirit of cancer survivors and their families, carers and medical specialists, bringing hope and goodwill for the future of all Australians touched by the disease.

    The money raised will help the Cancer Council to fund essential services, education and research programs, making a difference to lives of people with cancer today, and helping to protect lives tomorrow.

  24. Dear Carole,
    At school we had to do a research of anthing and I chose you.
