    "I read 'The Legend of Hobbomock' to my son for school and I was enthralled with the book. It is a wonderful story and as a home schooler the story tied in so well with our geography lesson on land forms as well as our study of folklore and legends. Thanks for the fabulous read!" - Jennifer Traynor
