Where we make your dreams come true

It was thanks to the Horn Book that Lisa Yee got to meet her childhood favorite writer. And how does she thank me? Lisa tells me that in honor of my legendary enthusiasm for the American Girl company, she named a character "Rachel Sutton" in her American Girls book Aloha, Kanani, set in contemporary Hawai'i. What she didn't tell me is that Rachel Sutton is the heroine's whiny little bitch cousin from the mainland who wrinkles her nose at all the riches of the Aloha State.

Thanks, Lisa. Next time could I just get a date with Danno?

Even if he is only three feet tall.

Roger . . . Rachel is a lovely girl. You should be honored to have her named for you. As for getting you a date with Danno, I'm working on it.

According to IMDb he's 5'5". Even with the standard exaggeration, he's well over three feet. You'd need a pretty sizable pocket. I'm just saying.

His head alone looks three feet tall to me.
(Sorry, Scott Caan; I love you on Entourage.)
