>It was thanks to the Horn Book that Lisa Yee got to meet her childhood favorite writer. And how does she thank me? Lisa tells me that in honor of my legendary enthusiasm for the American Girl company, she named a character “Rachel Sutton” in her American Girls book Aloha, Kanani, set in contemporary Hawai’i. What she didn’t tell me is that Rachel Sutton is the heroine’s whiny little bitch cousin from the mainland who wrinkles her nose at all the riches of the Aloha State.
Thanks, Lisa. Next time could I just get a date with Danno?
