  • 'Hatchuel said in his interview that he recommends the book for "kids from nine to ninety-nine", and that the history of the area is rich with opportunities for works of fiction.'
  • 'Originally planned for the playground at the Thesen Harbour Town venue, the party had to be moved indoors due to heavy rain - but, as most of the guests remarked, the weather was appropriate to the story.'
