Meet Dylan!

I thought it might be fun to meet the boy in First Spring. Although he's not little any more, he's a great kid and so, please say hello to my son, Dylan.

MARGARET: What do you think of having a book written and published for you?

DYLAN: When heard that First Spring was going to be published, I thought it was cool because that doesn't happen to many people. I got really excited when I saw the pictures Marina drew. Having a mom as an author is cool, too.

MARGARET: Thank you, Dylan. Do you have a favorite picture in the book?

DYLAN: *laughs* The airplane, but mostly all of them!

MARGARET: Now that the book is coming out, how does that make you feel?

DYLAN: I can brag to other people because I have a book out. And this is way better than just being in the dedication, like my aunt is in another book. *laughs* I'm practicing a cool signature so I can co-autograph the books with my mom and I think it's going to be a lot of fun when the books come.

MARGARET: This book is written about a northern child. What do you think of the four seasons?

DYLAN: It's a good experience to live in the north because you get to have snow. It's not whipped cream! People from the south aren't prepared to enjoy winter at all. I like fall and winter the best.

MARGARET: What things do you like to do?

DYLAN: I like going grouse and deer hunting with my dad. We spend hours together in the deer blind. I'm a First Class Boy Scout and about half way to becoming an Eagle Scout. I like camping and the outdoors so scouting is a lot of fun. I have lots of camping gear and always want a new sleeping bag or tent. I've become good friends with some of the older scouts that I look up to. Some of the work I'm doing with my mom on First Spring will help me earn my communications merit badge. I also like engines and anything on wheels. One day I want to buy a 4-wheeler. I mow lawns in the summer to earn some spending money and mow the skeet fields at the gun club as my volunteer project. I also run the sound board at church.

Thanks to Marina Movshina for doing such a good job on the illustrations. Marina, will you come and blog with us next so we can get to know you better?

I hope you like the book – you made a good choice. Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Margaret Rose and Dylan
