Katrina just wrote her first fan letter, via lj message, to the very funny, very talented, and possibly very sparkly [livejournal.com profile] ursulav. Katrina is convinced she must be sparkly, to be the source of the glory that is Harriet the Invincible.

We have read the first 12 chapters in the past hour and a half, and are only taking a break because my voice is tired and the baby woke up. I read the whole thing last night in the bath. It's a delightful story, and also serves as a child's first snark primer.

It was precious. She started with "Dear Miss Ursula" and ended with "you can write me a note anytime. From Katrina."

I love seeing that level of enthusiasm in kids! It gets shut down so often in real life.


Plus I'm a rabid reader, and was hoping to find something that would get K excited. When I pointed out that once she gets a little better at reading she can read Harriet whenever she wants, as often as she wants, it was like a whole new world opened up in front of her. Yay!

I've never had the pleasure, but that is certainly the impression I get from her lj posts. Hopefully some day!
