Dear M/s Carter,
We received your beautiful artwork this week and the children in our class have been absolutely blown away by the stunning and colourful designs. We can hardly wait to start using them to help us with our creative writing. The bookmarks are very special and will be treasured by each and every child.
We have now included your official website on our blog.
Visitors can just go to the links
in the right hand column of our blog,
or to this post linked under Literature and Reviews.
These are direct links
and hopefully people can go to your website
to find out more about your wonderful book.
M/s Carter we would like to say
a very big thank you
from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness,
and for sending us your beautiful artwork.
We are indeed very privileged and feel quite honoured
to have received these beautiful pieces and the lovely bookmarks.
From 5/6 Francis
Here are some of the children’s words of gratitude about your book. The remainder are in the comments.
Dear Ms Carter, After I read the book I was waiting in excitement for you to send us your beautifully created artwork. I am still waiting in pure anticipation for our personalised pieces of art. I hope it’s not too much to do since I’m sure you are very busy. I’m grateful that you have made time for us. I hear that we are using your artwork to do visual literacy next term and I can’t wait! Once again, I’m honoured to have read this book that is not even out in Australia yet. I’ll have to read about what we can do to help those poor children. I have to say that to everybody I know, to spread the word. ~Artemis

Ms Carter Thank you for the Kingdom of Lost Children and for the bookmarks and the fascinating pieces of art. I haven’t yet read the Kingdom of Lost Children but I think if I do I’ll be crazy about it. I think the people that have read the book must be really lucky. I have heard that all the people who read it said it was great and amazing. I’m really looking forward to reading this beautiful and fascinating book! (Kimi )
Dear Ms Carter, This is a great honor to read your book and to be in Mrs Francis’ class. I really would like to thank you, Ms Carter, for all your efforts and all the trouble you went to for the artwork and bookmarks that you delivered for our class this year! I think it will be good for visual literacy. Another thanks to Ms Carter for everything! (Julie)
Hi Ms Carter, Thank you for the bookmarks and pictures for the book called Kingdom of Lost Children. Mrs Francis showed us the pictures and bookmarks, the illustrations were amazing! When I went to language school a parent said that the book was truly amazing. Thank you for the book again! (Christine)
Hi Ms Carter,
Thank you very much for the pictures that you have sent us. The bookmarks will be treasured very dearly. I really did enjoy this book. The artwork was amazing. In this book there were a lot of imaginary places and creatures. This was one of the things that made this book so interesting. One of my favourite pictures is ‘The Battle’ because of the way it is drawn and how it shows the character’s feelings. This book also had a lot of depth in it because it talked about how children are being treated and how they want to be free to live their own life. Also it tells us that no adult has the right to kidnap children away from their families. One of the things that I find important in the society is that we all should never lose hope, no matter what the outcomes may be. Anyway Ms Carter I really enjoy this story and I can keep reading it and never get tired of it. (Tracey)
Dear Ms Carter, It was a great privilege to read the book. I was so excited to read it at first. I knew there would be something special about the book. It was deeply expressed, with such beautifully-drawn pictures. I loved the pictures the most, they were so meaningful! Thank you so much Ms Carter for the artwork that you gave us! They were truly beautiful! I will remember those special moments when I read the book forever. Thank you!! (Kelly)
