Yesterday I got a pack of letters from fourth graders at Lincoln Elementary School in Ellensburg, Washington. They were awesome, each and every one. They told me about their favorite books and their favorite sports and asked me questions about The Boy at the End of the World, and many of them included illustrations of robots and last boys and mammoths and gadgets and weaponized prairie dogs. Getting letters like this is one of the very best things about being a middle-grade writer.
Here are just two of my favorites, each by a different Dylan.
