You’ve created a lovely moody scene of Twillingate Cemetery, complete with storm clouds. I suspect that the driver in the car might be Mr. Easton, Derek’s beloved grade six teacher. I especially like how you’ve added a small stone lamb carving on the top of one of the grave markers. This is such an important detail to my story, so I’m very glad you’ve thought to include it.
I was interested to learn that you’ve had many growth spurts. I’m sure you’ll have a few more. I didn’t have many when I was small. That’s the way it goes.
If you like dogs, you might enjoy reading the prequel to The Spotted Dog Last Seen. It is called The Missing Dog is Spotted. Let me know what you think!
