An Up-and-Coming Novelist as Guest Blogger

No, it's not me. It's my daughter. She wrote a book If Second Graders Ruld the World and I thought I'd share it with you. A special preview edition for my loyal blog readers, so you can say you knew her when. Clearly, she takes after her mother, already blowing things up and hurting people. Don't blame me for the creative spelling. Apparently, her publishing house needs to hire a copy editor.

If second graders ruld the world, I would make a big lemonad stand. And save the mony for charity. And make a big roket so people can live on Pluto, Venes, and the moon.

Then the lemonade axsadetly speld on the roket. then the roket blueup while people were in the roket. So the people that were in the roket were floting in outer space. But they got clocer to the moon.

And then they bounsed back to earth. But one of the girls brok her neck. And she had to stay in my casil tell she felt better. And do you know that Aubrey is the one that broke her head on the moon?

And so no budy lived on the moon, or Venes, and Pluto. Because Pluto is very cold. And avery body lived on Earth. They were happy. And avery thing was normal. Exsept 2nd graders ruld the world.

The End.

Blog schedule update:
Monday--March Madness from Peter again.
Wednesday and Thursday--a blog interview with Carol Cox, fellow Arizonan and ACFWer who has a historical suspense coming out from Barbour next month. Don't tell anyone but she has a javelina story. Don't know what a javelina is? Well, you'll just have to come back to find out.

How neat, Jen. I hope you're keeping a copy of the blog. I'm sure she'll be so tickled that
she made her debut at such an early age.

You go girl, I am so proud of you, a budding artist and writer all wrapped in one cute package. Ama

Good job! How about making me a copy too and autographing it?

Jen, this is great. I'm sure this will go in that treasure box of things all moms save for their kids. And I will definitely say the subject matter is influenced by you. Well that and her science class obviously. LOL

You should ask her to do this once a month. That would be really neat. :)

I love this book! In fact, it's the best book I've read this month!

Of course, it doesn't hurt that I have a daughter named Aubrey (her neck is fine, btw!).

Great job all around.

Now someone give that author (and her brother) a cookie!!!

Awww, this is so cute! Thanks for sharing, Jennifer. We'll keep our eyes open for the sequal. ;-)

I want a ride in the big roket. And some lemonad. And a get-well stint in your daughter's casil.

Loved the shifting tenses! I wonder if anyone would notice if I axsadetly shifted mine. And do you know that Aubrey should have been wearing a helmet? You never can tell when a roket will bloeup.

Too cute, Jen. Some day the literary critics will analyze this in an attempt to understand the early genius of your Pulitzer prize-winning daughter. And maybe by then avery budy will probably be living on Venes--at least if someone gets smart enough to let second graders rul the world.
