I am a former high school teacher with a master's degree. I have read Razzle Dazzler and cannot rave enough about Ms. Randall's imagination and her usage of words. She makes me feel like I am right there in her story. Having read all of Ms. Randall's stories, I believe her writings are more like crafted top-notch movies. Actually all ages would appreciate Ms. Randall's talent and creativity. I highly recommend her books, especially Razzle Dazzler!
