“The Monster Gasped, ‘OMG!’” Student Editorial Board

March 21st—

Ten enthusiastic Brentano Elementary students formed a Student Editorial Board to compose the book's opening letter, which will welcome readers of "The Monster Gasped, 'OMG!'" to the boundless imaginations of their fellow 5th graders.

Written collaboratively over the month of February, each student contributed answers to questions like, "What's the easiest/hardest thing about being an author?" and "If you could only tell someone one thing about this book, what would it be?" and "What can a reader expect to see in this book?"

You'll have to wait until June to read the letter in its glimmering entirety, but here's one of our favorite student insights:

"If you don't have an imagination, 'imaginate' that you do and try again ... Don't put this book down so easily because you don't know how hard this was."
