Lucas, I've never seen the Beatles live, but it's cool that you've been to a Paul McCartney concert.  I like most of their music.  Do you have a favorite? Do you think one of the Vampires Don't Wear Polka DotsBeatles look like Dracula?
     Ali, Zoe, Lexie, Jed, and Dylan you are right.  When Marcia and I first wrote Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots we actually did have Mrs. Jeepers turning into a vampire monster right in front of all the kids.  Our editor asked us to change it so that it wouldn't be so scary and so kids could decide for themselves.  That's why the Bailey School Kids books end the way they do.  Do you think we should have gone with the scarier endings?  ttyl, Debbie

Hey Lucy, how cool that you live in the Philippines.  I've Dracula Doesn't Rock and Rollnever been there.  If you can't get Mermaid Tales locally, they are also available online and as ebooks.  Have you ever seen any mermaids in the South China Sea?   Lucas, I hope you liked Dracula Doesn't Rock and Roll.  Your new ideas were cool-the devil one could be very creepy!  Take care, Debbie

Hi Lucy!  I'm so glad you liked your Mermaid Tales book.  Guess what?  The fourth one comes out soon.  I'm pretty Danger in the Deep Blue Seaexcited about it because Pearl meets a shark!  I never knew before that we need sharks in the ocean.  They help in a lot of ways and one is that they keep fish populations healthy by eating diseased ones.  Since you like dolphins, here's a sneak peek at book five that comes out in May.  Good luck with your writing, Debbie

Hey Jesse, I loved third grade.  Unfortunately I got in trouble Zombies Don't Coach Soccera lot for talking too much.  I hope that doesn't happen to you.  Lucas, your cavewoman idea is great and different.  I think it's fun to write about things that are a little bit different and unexpected.  Skyler, your zombie idea is definitely different and unexpected (and I do like zombies!)  Zombies Don't Disco Dance is funny enough without the chain saw and the diving, don't you think?  Scholastic is pretty protective and probably wouldn't let a chain saw be in a kid's book.  It might be too scary!  Have a great week, Debbie
