Praise Mockingbird in Mark Twain’s Hat

“We LOVE this book! As we finish each chapter, we can’t wait to find out what happens next! I am ordering another few copies as gifts for my daughter’s friends.”- Yaron, Amazon
 “With ‘The Mockingbird in Mark Twain's Hat’, Kaia Alexander is at the top of her formidable writing talents. She has mastered historical fiction, screenwriting and with this, a timeless children's story. This is a delightful adventure featuring unforgettable animal characters that will become embedded in the heart of every reader. Whether you read this to a little one or gift it to a child to read, this is an ideal book that entertains and enthralls with every page while evoking a period and piece of literary history. I believe that Mark Twain himself would approve! Kaia not only brings her beloved animals to life, but she evokes the universal yearning to uniquely express oneself, like the protagonist of the story, Wynne. Above and beyond a simple children's story, Kaia weaves in thematic layers that remind me of myth and legend. I guarantee that the characters and story will stick with you forever and inspire children to be themselves, challenge themselves, and learn to write! They may even become interested in Mr. Twain himself, just like Wynne. Or maybe, the kinds of songs that Wynne learns to sing, and that they can learn to sing their own.”-Stuart Volkow, Amazon
 “Like all Kaia Alexander's books, it's a page turner and you can't put it down! A delightful adventure with twists and surprises. Love the characters and the illustrations. This is a great gift book for children as well as adults and sure to become a classic!  ”- S. Peck, Amazon

Mockingbird In Mark Twai's Hat Guest Review by Katy M.

Navigating how to fly and sing beautiful songs can be hard work for a newborn mockingbird, a fact that is certainly true for the protagonist of 'Mockingbird In Mark Twain's Hat,' by Kaia Alexander. Although Wynne was only born a few days ago, he already has big dreams of becoming an author just like his hero, the writer Mark Twain. Set in 1898, this story is one of adventure, independence, friendship and kindness that is ideal for readers of any and all ages but written for children. Wynne wants to see the world outside of his family's small nest, but he gets introduced to it in a way that he could never have predicted, one day when he is knocked out by a mean flock of crows and almost killed by a rough gray cat. Luckily, Wynne is saved by a little girl on her way home from school. However, unaware that his family's nest waits above, the girl takes Wynne home and asks her mother if she can keep him as a pet. Wynne begins to see more of the world than he'd ever hoped and this is only made even more true when he manages to escape the cage that the little girl put him in after she takes him on a train to the county fair. Soon Wynne is soaring over the Mississippi river, making friends with strange and fascinating animals and even befriending Mark Twain, himself. Full of great lessons for young readers, 'Mockingbird In Mark Twain's Hat' is a spellbinding tale about living your dreams, finding your home and appreciating your family. This is a story that begs to be read aloud, to be talked over and discussed by readers. Kaia Alexander has created magic in the form of a story here and I would recommend picking it up as soon as possible!
