Go Home...
News About Go Home River

GO HOME, RIVER being our first book, we had no idea how the media would react to its publication. Being writers ourselves, we were a little nervous at the thought that people might write about us. But then the first news story came out (below) and called Go Home, River "a bedtime story for children all over America." That story was picked up by other papers, and the news just kept getting better. Now when a new envelope of clippings arrives from the publisher, we can't wait to read them.
We wish we could share all the stories, but the bigger papers and magazines are pretty tight with reprint permissions. When we do have permission to share our stories with you, we'll add them here.
