THE READ EVERY DAY PROJECT - Ross the Reader and the GPISD

For the titles below, I collaborated with the Grand Prairie ISD Librarians, who collectively wrote a series of books under the pseudonym, Reid Daily, to promote reading for everyone - just for the fun of it.  

With each title, I produced and narrated the audio version.

The Legend of Ross the Reader

Ross the Reader and the Adventure of the Pirate’s Treasure  

Ross the Reader and the Great Balloon Race!



Hi, C. J.,

If you are the reader of the Evanovich books, I just want to tell you how WONDERFUL you are! You have made ALL the characters so VIVID, so funny, and sexy, and so full of life I can't imagine anyone living up to your performances. Janet's writing is so clever, and with your reading it is even more entertaining.Your portrayals of Grandma Mazzer, Joe, Ranger, and Lula are all priceless! You are a marvel! I am a former college theatre director and highly prejudiced against poor acting talent. I've seen the best of the best on stage in London, including Olivier and all his generation's brightest stars, so believe me when I say I do not lavish compliments easily. But YOU are tremendously talented and I'm thrilled to be able to write and let you know how much pleasure you have brought me and no doubt countless others.

With every good wish,

Rita Case
