Hi

Sorry for the delay in commenting but I took a short break from the site.

A nice first chapter setting the scene with Wendy and Max. The interaction between the two is cute and well written, as is the dialogue between Wendy and Jessie.

You have a lovely gentle way with words and your scenes are very discriptive, even down to the hiccupping! I liked all the stuff about the cell phone it brings a good modern feel to the tale. A good hook at the end to get the page turning to find out if Max was badly hurt or not.

On the comments from only a couple of things jarred with me. You say that Max's paws 'clanked' as they made contact with the ground. this seemed like an odd choice of words unles there will be a reason why his paws made such a sound. Also when Jessie jumped out of the Doodlebug you say she 'jogged' to the front of the car. personally over such a short distance jogged sounded too heavy a word, perhaps try rushed or flew.

Well, good luck with this Sara and I hope it does as well a Finger Bones.

Good to see Wendy back in another adventure. I had a quick look at this and hope it will do well.
