And the Reviews of Root Bound Keep Coming!

Here's a review from another young reader, 9 year old Emma from east coast USA.

Emma writes:

"Root Bound is one of my favorite books and I have read LOTS!!! I can really connect with the character, Emma and not just because my name is Emma. While I was reading the book I saw that the next book "Water Works" is in the making I will simply DIE if I do not get that book!! The book is great I have recommended it to almost everyone I know. My favorite character ( besides Emma ) is either Piers or tiny Mat. I love how Piers is sooooooooooooo obsessed with his breakfast, and how Mat thinks he is so much better then everyone else. Root Bound is an amazing book and I hope that everyone who reads it loves it as much as I do." 
 -Emma P., Age 9 (USA)

Boys Say...Root Bound is Great!

Boys like Root Bound, too! Here's a review from Sal (12 years old):

Sal writes:

"I just finished your book. It was great! Totally bodacious. I specially liked how the Basement Brownies were called Basement Brownie and how there was an Under and an Over. I liked how the houses had roots that and could sneeze. I also found it interesting that everyone had a counterpart. It was interesting how the skinny Brownie "Piers" was obsessed with food when you would think a fat brownie would be obsessed with food. It must be hard when the name of your species is a food. It was a fun read. I think other kids would like it too."

How Far Will You Go to Find Your Way Home?

It's been a long journey since Root Bound first sprouted as a tiny seedling in my brain. It has since grown into a fully formed book with a life all its own. Meanwhile, my life has taken me in all sorts of directions, and I got caught up in their tangled roots.

Lately, though, the basement brownies have been bugging me almost every day, wondering when they will finally be introduced to the inhabitants of Upper. And, by Foundation, it's about time that I did.

Root Bound will be released in print and eBook very shortly. Please be sure to check back soon!
