    5. I was so interested in reading Mr. Blairs Labyrinth. I read a chapter before I went to bed each night even when I was bored and after I was not bored anymore. When Mis. Lazzara gave me my book I never liked reading books and now I'm getting a Pitch In Time because I loved Mr. Blair Labyrinth. I had my granny order it on . I started reading a Pitch In Time in the school library and i fell in love with it. Thanks to you the library is like my home. From, Kyleigh Alexander

    6. Mr. Lytle, I really liked your book Mr. Blair's Labyrinth especially the parts where they were in the circus and Sergeant Horne came to the show and the part where Lefty, Charlie, Jack were all in the junkyard and they were looking for boots for Jack and Charlie and I liked the theme of going back in time and experiencing how it was back then in the Great Depression and for them noticing how hard it was. Thank You, for your time coming to our class and giving us the books.
