Turbo and the Third Grade Class

Third Graders

Happy Third Graders Learn About Authorship

Mary Anderson Lee and her friend Susette visited Ms. Hopper’s third-grade class to read Turbo Gets A Home and answer questions about the dog as well as being an author.

The teacher had them write letters to Mary and Susette asking questions.

Here are some of the letters ~

Dear Mrs. Lee,
I loved this story because it r3eally kept me interested and I wanted to know what happens next. And it made a awesome story because it was really heart warming and it had a lot of feeling.

How did you become an author?

How long did it take you to write this story?

How old is Turbo?

Why did you want to write this story?



Dear Mrs. Lee,
I think this is a good
 story because it makes your heart soft and have a lot of feeling for this dog. Also it teaches you to be kind to animals. 

What does it take to be an author?

Is Turbo still afraid of people?



Dear Mrs. Lee,
I really liked your book. Some things I liked about it are how it keeps you interested by wanting to know what happens next. I also liked how it gives you feelings for Turbo. For example: sad, happy, and excited. Next, it warms your heart when Turbo gets a home because the poor thing has been threw (sic) so much! Some questions I have for you are:

Is it a lot of work being an author?

Is there a Turbo Two?

Do you have other books? I would like to read them if so.



Dear Mrs. Lee,
I like many things about your book Turbo. I’s like to tell you some of them. For example, I really like how you described Turbo as friendly dog that just needed a loving home. I also like how you described the moment when Suzi and Turbo look into each other’s eyes on adoption day.

I also have a couple questions for you.

What inspired you to write your book?

What is life like being an author?
