    Hi Makenzie!

    Congratulations on getting your story published. I remember you and your story from the Young Authors class you took from me a while back. I’m so happy for you that you are a published author now!

    My two girls each got something published in Launch Pad (I was looking for their stories, and that’s how I found yours!) You can read theirs – one is called “My Cat is Alive!” and the other is “Yummy Heritage”.

    I really like the artwork for your story! So cute!

    Keep up the great work and keep on writing!

    I love this story so much. The illustrations are so amazing and I really love how Maria drew Scout.

    I loved this story!!! It’s really rare that I like animal stories…This one is as good as Blyton’s stories! Keep up the good work! :)

    I’d love to illustrate another! A lot of it depends on the editor, too. I’m happy the story turned out so well. :)

    Hey this is Makenzie the author of Scouts Big Adventure. I love the artwork you did Maria! It is so realistic looking. I am going to do a second book and was wondering if you could illustrate it also. I don’t know when it will be done, it is also about Scout my guinea pig. I have other stories I might try to get published also. Thank you so much!
