Hook- with- Warsash C. of E. Academy
Dear Chris O’Dowd and Dawn O’Porter,
Before I say anything- I think you’re awesome! My name is Homer Simpson and I’m a ten year old girl from Warsash - Southampton. This week at my School, we are writing to famous people who we admire and are inspired by, and I instantly thought of you both.
I first came across you, Chris, from my dad (because I’m a quarter Irish). He introduced me to the books ‘Moone Boy’ at the age of eight and I instantly fell in love. Since then, he has shown me the films as well as the programs. My favourite is the wedding one. I have also seen Brides Maids and many more. But my all-time favourite is the imaginary friend - Sean Caution Murphy.
I first heard of you, Dawn, from my mum, she is a major vintage-fashion-lover as am I and you are our number fashion hero! My favourite thing you wear is the style of your dresses, you’ve even inspired me to design some of my own. You’ve inspired me to dress how I feel- but at the same time feel fashionable. After looking at your work I have changed my style from: boring and repetitive to fun, comfortable, stylish and colourful!
You two have inspired me and other children to: read books; dress how you feel and not care what other think; write your own books; design and create; and to let your imagination go wild.
I still don’t understand how you can raise kids and yet still continue to entertain and design. In other words: I love your work.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter; I really appreciate it. If possible I would love it you could maybe return a signed picture, or a letter would be great. I’m aware you are very busy so if not, I’m still very grateful. I hope this letter has put a smile on your faces.
