Dear Mr. Henshaw,

This year I am in the sixth grade in a new school in a different town. Our
teacher is making us do author reports to improve our writing skills, so of
course I thought of you. Please answer the following questions.

1 . How many books have you written?

  1. Is Boyd Henshaw your real name or is it fake?

  2. Why do you write books for children?

  3. Where do you get your ideas?

  4. Do you have any kids?

  5. What is your favorite book that you wrote?

  6. Do you like to write books?

  7. What is the title of your next book?

  8. What is your favorite animal?

  9. Please give me some tips on how to write a book.

This is important to me. I really want to know so I can get to be a famous
author and write books exactly like yours. Please send me a list of your
books that you wrote, an autographed picture and a bookmark. I need your
answer by next Friday. This is urgent!

Sincerely,

Leigh Botts
