RUSH: Here’s Anna. She’s 11 years old in Spokane, Washington. Hi, Anna!
CALLER: Hi, Rush!
CALLER: I’m doing good. How are you?
RUSH: I am fabulous. I’m glad you called.
CALLER: I just wanted to say how much I really love your books. Me and my sister and brother, we have read your books each twice, and so I really got to know them. And I was just wondering who drew you those pictures, because I’m a very visual person, and the pictures help me understand what’s going on in the book.
RUSH: Well, you are so sweet. This is a compliment we rarely hear. I mean, a lot of people tell us they like the books, but the graphics, we spent a lot of time on those, and we actually write the books around the graphics. We see a graphic or we create one that we want to use and we’ll write the book around it.
I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do, Anna, the best way to answer this, if your mom or dad would let us, I would like to put together a Rush Revere package of goodies from Revere and Liberty and send to you, and it will have some of the graphics and some of the answers that you’re speeking in the package that we’ve put together for a lot of people that like the books.
CALLER: Thank you.
CALLER: Yes, I do have them all.
RUSH: You’ve read them all?
CALLER: Yes, I have.
RUSH: Okay. Well, we’ll throw some goodies in there. I’ll throw in the CDs of me reading every book so that if you get tired of reading them, you can listen to me read them to you. But, hang on, Anna, and we’ll get your address. We can send you this little goody package from Liberty and Rush Revere and the people there. We would love to send it to you. There will be a Liberty doll or two in there and some other things too. So please don’t hang up so we can get that address.
