Hello. I’m Hattie’s great-grandma. She told you how I helped her establish boundaries, right? Eh? What’s that mean, you ask?
I don’t feel like talking about that right now. You can read about it in that book about Hattie coming in April. Hattie Hates Hugs, I think it is called.
I did want to tell you that Hattie is a wonderful girl. I had mixed feelings about the family reunion because the relatives are so loud. Not Hattie though.
Well, it all worked out in the end. No, no. No more questions. I don’t feel like talking anymore. I’m going to take a walk in the park.
Before I go- Sarah wanted me to share an endorsement with you.
Hi! I’m Hattie. I don’t usually like to talk about myself but since we just met, and since I can’t really see you, I’m going to tell you two important things about myself.
One, I really like horseshoes. I love to carry my lucky horseshoe around with me. Two, I hate hugs. You might have already figured that out by the title of a new book about me called Hattie Hates Hugs coming in April 2022.
I’m really excited about that book. One time, an adult asked me if there was going to be a second book where I learn to like hugs.
I hate hugs because that’s just the way I am. And now I know how to tell the people around me that I don’t want to be hugged. My great-grandma taught me how. I think you’re going to meet her soon.
Well, I’m off to pitch horseshoes. See you again in April!
Oh wait- my author, Sarah Hovorka, said writers should follow her Twitter account @HovorkaSarah for a chance to win a picture book or query critique.
I received my author copies of my debut picture book Hattie Hates Hugs! Just one more month until the official release date.
