I get the best letters! It always amazes me when someone gets "into" one of my stories. When you write to me about one of my stories I feel honored, humbled and excited. I like to get letters by email because I can try to answer right away on the web site.
If you would like to email me, my email is akiak3@ yahoo.com. It will help me spot your email if you include "letters" in your subject heading.
I thought you might like to see the kind of things that people write to me about, so here you go. This is YOUR page.
I like it when someone sends me a picture. Here's a great one by Risa NIIKURA all the way from Japan!
Thank you for sending me this beautiful picture.
My favorite part of this drawing is the top of one of the buildings- can you see the four other birds up there?
These are two great TOGO drawings. The first one features Togo vs. Godzilla. And Godzilla is my favorite monster! The second one is just plain good!
My second favorite monster is Frankenstein. Here's a drawing of him given to me by Rachel. Do you have a favorite monster?
Here's a fine drawing of some characters from my books. I like to see YOUR drawings of my characters.
Kelly says that she loves all my stories, especially the dog stories.
Thank you for the nice drawing of Painter and Ugly!
Here is a beautiful drawing of the dog Ugly, from the book PAINTER AND UGLY. And, "Do I like?" I sure do, Sara!
Ugly really isn't ugly, is he?
This drawing of Painter, from my book PAINTER AND UGLY, was given to me by a great student artist in the Washington Township school system. But they forgot to sign it! If this is your picture, please let me know your first name so I can post it here. Thanks!
Pretty nice picture, don't you agree?
I am glad that you like that part of my book PAINTER AND UGLY. I tried hard to make it excitng. Thanks!
