I love the book - kids will love the book. The story was very moving and appealing. I love the detail - the description. Kids reading that - or having it read to them - could just imagine the scenery, the ugly baby hawk - the fall down the mine shaft - kids ( I ) could just picture it. I loved the book - it is special!

Doc The Hawk is filled with a magical blend of humour, imagery and playfulness. It stands alone as the must have children's book for any collection.  I knew you could do it!

Your book was a wonderful story of friendship which the children thoroughly enjoyed.  The story touched upon some important moral character virtues such as resiliency, perseverance and caring.  The children loved the Dee character and enjoyed watching Doc grow up.  When Dee fell into the hole, the classroom was silent and all eyes and ears were focused o the book in order to find out what would happen to the little boy.

Dear Paul:  I received my copy of Doc the Hawk over the weekend ... thank you SO much! My 3yr old daughter and I read a bit each night - she can't say 'Doc the Hawk' enough times!  The story is described in rich detail and colourful description, captured and complimented beautifully by the illustrations. It's a very fun and entertaining read!  Children's stories about helping nature instil the imperative of conservation and preservation into our next generation, yours certainly does both!  Again, thanks so much for the book, and for personalizing it too!  I look forward to finishing it with Vanessa and then reading it again for my 9mth daughter Lauren (in a few years!)  Wishing you continued success,

I read Doc the Hawk to my grade 6 class and we all loved it. It is a great story and the descriptive language made my students feel like they were a part of the story.

My wife and I like your book very much. Nice text, well illustrated. Too many books and movies are on the dark side nowadays. Yours is pleasant, enjoyable ... with a touch of positive innocence. Well done Paul!

I bought Doc the Hawk for our daughter, but once I started reading, I could not put it down.  It is a wonderful story for both young and old and beautifully illustrates how all of us, at some time, need to spread our wings, take a chance and fly!!!

I really liked Doc the Hawk. I thought the bird was very funny, the pictures were colourful, and I learned lots of new words while reading the story. I hope you write more stories about Doc the Hawk soon!

I had planned on reading just a little bit of the book, but then I could not put it down!

I absolutely loved the interaction between Doc and Dee. Now there are two characters who fully understand the true meaning of friendship.

My children were glued to every word, and we all cried at the ending!

There are so many things I can say about your book, but WOW seems to describe it perfectly!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your writing style is amazing and descriptive. It was just like being there and when it comes right down to it, isn't that exactly what a great story is supposed to do?

The drawings rival any picture book on the market. Great blend of story and artistry!  Bravo!
