  1. What a beautiful book! Congratulations!

    A book I love to recommend, because it blew my own mind, is Sorghaghtani of Mongolia, by Shirin Yim Bridges, part of the Thinking Girl’s Teasury of Real Princesses (I with it had been “thinking kids” instead, but that didn’t stop my boys from enjoying this one too).

  2. Hi Emily, I would love to donate a printed version of my comic book Love! Love! Fighting! for your giveaway if you are accepting prize donations. I have it only to read at Right now it’s currently being self-published but I am working on raising funds on my kickstarter to buy the ISBN number to get it in book stores and on I hope to be able to contribute <3
