Top Praise for Hobbomock
just picked up this book up for my son after reading the article in
the New Haven Register. My son loved it! He was so excited about it that he wants
his teacher to read it in class tomorrow. From a parent of a second
grade boy who I'm trying to encourage to read more, I just wanted to
say thank you and Jesse Bonelli for working on this book. My son has
always asked questions about Sleeping Giant as we live in New Haven
and see it frequently. Now he knows the legend. Again, thank you as
you have hopefully sparked an interest in reading for a young mind."
