The Kidliterati Ten is an interview series with young readers. We ask them about a favorite book and hope that you enjoy their answers. Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream? My name is Eva. I'm 7 years old, and my favorite ice cream is vanilla!
What book did you read and why did you choose it? I read Smile because Raina [the main character] got braces.
Can you describe this book in one word? Funny.
What was your favorite part of this story? When she had to visit the dentist -- he was really funny!
If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do? I would ask my parents to take me to the orthodontist.
What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book? I would say that the pictures are cool and it's really funny.
What do you think about the book's cover? I like the braces! And the blue background.
Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not? Yes. I read Sisters, which is about the same people.
Can you name another book that reminds you of this one? Sisters! In that one, they go on a trip in a van.
If you could ask the author one question about this book what would it be? How old were you when you wrote the book?
Raina Telgemeier was in her early thirties when she wrote Smile.
Thank you for the interview, Eva!
