This past week, I was very happy to hear a heartwarming story about my own story, “Adventures of the Bunny Baron: Captain Barnacle’s Revenge.” I wanted to share it because it is very cute and uplifting.
Cannon K.’s elementary school has “secret reader” readings throughout the year. This is where someone surprises the class and reads a book to everyone. Clues are given to the class every day leading up the the end of the week, trying to get the class to figure out who the secret reader will be.
The clues were all issued, and the class had it determined that it was Cannon’s Dad, however, he was supposed to be in Chicago for the day. The time came, and it was Cannon’s dad! He was so happy and so surprised! Mr K. brought in “Adventures of the Bunny Baron: Captain Barnacle’s Revenge” and read it aloud to the class. It is one of Cannon’s favorite books and he was so happy to be able to share it with his class, and even better have his dad read it to everyone! Not only did he treat everyone with the story, but Mr. K also brought in a healthy snack in honor of the pirate Captain Barnacle called “Pirates Booty.”
It is always a great treat for me to hear how well received my stories are and how people like to share them with others. They are obviously intended to be liked, but it is great to be able to see them “in action.” Thank you Cannon and Mr. K for sharing your great story with me.
