Hi Lauri. I have always loved the book “Where The Wild Things Are.” One of my all time favorite books. The boys love it too. I know you will be published some day for sure. Wondering why you changed Freddy’s name? Just curious.
Thank you for your positive comments. Where The Wild Things Are is a classic for sure. And the answer to your question about why I changed Freddy’s name to Finley is: I changed it because after I wrote the story, I realized that there are already a lot of children’s books out there that have main characters (mostly frogs) with the name Freddy. I wanted to find a more unique name for my character.
