  1. My family lives near the St. Croix river, and you have added magic to our lives with Horns and Wrinkles. I’ve not read another story like it. When I mention this book around my daughters, they both get a faraway look in their eyes, like they’ve headed for the water. Thank you!

    • Hi Amy, Sorry about the tardy reply. I’m tickled to hear that you enjoyed reading about Claire’s adventures, and I’m especially pleased to hear that your kids get a faraway look in their eyes when headed for water. That strikes me as a hopeful sign for our future.

      Thanks for taking the time to drop me a note. See you on the river!

      Best wishes, Joe
