Good afternoon, Ms. Levine!
I just wanted to send a note of thank you for your wonderful stories. My girlfriend and I are librarians in Maryland and thoroughly enjoy reading your books, but also to recommend them to young readers. As a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday, I ordered a custom book cake with Ella Enchanted as one of the books! It was too pretty to eat.

Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you for making our world a little more magical.

Hi Ms. Levine,

I just wanted to write and let you know that I am 28, pregnant with my first child, and my husband and I just found out that we are having a girl.

Your book Ella Enchanted was my absolute favorite growing up, and I must have read this book over 100 times (no exaggeration).

We are naming our daughter Ella in honor of this.

Thank you for spreading magic to all the young girls (and boys) out there. You are very much appreciated.

Andrea--My latest novel--just out on May 2nd--is a prequel. Addie, Meryl, and Rhys aren't in it, but someone you will recognize is!

Ella Stern--Thanks for letting me know! Good luck with your writing!

Desiree--Thank you for all the compliments! I'm delighted you enjoy my books. I'm pretty sure your library will get THE WISH and DAVE AT NIGHT for you to read if you ask. They can borrow them from another library. I hope you keep writing--you have an exuberant voice!

Juliana--Thanks for telling me! Good luck with your writing!

Joie--Nice to hear from you! The ogres in ELLA and the ogres in TWO PRINCESSES are entirely different, because the worlds are not connected. I like re-imagining magical creatures in new ways.

Hi Ms. Levine,
Gosh, I always get so excited to have this opportunity to talk to you. It's really an honor.
I was rereading a few of my favorites that you've written, Ella Enchanted and Two Princesses. And I got to thinking. Though we don't encounter ogres in such a personal manner in Two Princesses, I could tell they were different than the ones in Ella. In the case of their speaking, it's described much more harshly in Two Princesses than in Ella, as rocks colliding rather than honey and oil. Anyway, this came as a little interesting to me. I thought maybe the ogres change their characteristics based on their environment. Just wanted to know your thoughts on the matter. Would love an encyclopedia on all this, lol! 😁

Hello Mrs. Levine!

I grew up reading your books and as a rising college sophomore I returned to a childhood favorite of mine, "Fairest" which inspired me to continue writing my own fantasy novel.

I would just like to thank you for putting out such amazing books about strong and amazing women who can kick butt in a skirt and it has definitely inspired my life long obsession with fairy tales and the fantasy genre in general. The world needs more stories about marginalized fantasy heroes and I hope to add to that list of stories as well.

In a time where the future is uncertain, it is important that children and even adults have a magical escape and I am so grateful that your books continue to do that for me.

Love Always,
