A hit with my four year old grandson

I ordered 1-4 in anticipation of a visit from my four year old grandson who is unchurched. I had him at the first page! Over the next few days we read and reread the story of Finnian and the questions he had got more and more intense and more and more Catholic. I prayed for the Holy Spirit to give me the words. When I asked him what he wanted to do our last day he said " I want to read Finnian, then I want to BE Finnian!" Sooooo we made a treasure map, we learned about Vikings, made our back yard into the Seven Mountains..and I played several roles including Abba. In the end, he asked me to teach him to pray and I gave him a miraculous medal and his own copy of Finnian 1-4. P.S. we also read Phantom Phoenix #1 which ended in this comment "Grammy, when do we get more of that story.? The person who wrote it I think knows more than they are telling us!" Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Love the series, have one tiny suggestion/pet peeve

I love the series and it’s originality, it’s characters and it’s fun use of traditional legends and lore. However, there is an annoying trend in your books that I think could be easily fixed. It feels like every other word is in bold type, which is supposed to enhance or reinforce what the character is saying but just ends up tripping my mind and making the dialogue seem forced. It’s been the case in the Phantom Phoenix books as well, and I think that your excellent writing could feel a lot more organic if it didn’t feel like the characters were stressing every other word. Anyway, thank you for your hard work and I look forward to future issues of both series.
