Got the nicest note from Emma who said, 

"Donna, I just received the book "Ava's Secret Tea Party" I ordered as a gift for my granddaughter, and it is wonderful! Love the story, the illustrations, the crafts and recipes. Can't wait to share it with my granddaughter. Now I have to buy a copy for myself. Congratulations on a job well done." - Emma

Thank you, Emma. You've made my day!

This is only a portion of one illustration in "Ava's Secret Tea Party." Look at the lovely detailed work by Bella Sinclair. I hope the pic is clear enough that you can see the hidden teacup and cookies. So sweet.
