Artsy Smartsy Club
Dear Mr. Pinkwater,
Eveliina (9) and I had a roaring good time reading about Arthur Bobowicz and Henrietta in Hoboken.
We just started the Artsy Smartsy Club and she loves hearing and saying the name Bruno Ugg (“like Egg,” she giggles) and I delight in saying the name, Loretta Fischetti, out loud again and again.
And then last night – I wish you could have heard it – the wild guffawing, cluck cluck, gut-busting squeals that erupted from Eveliina when I reached the paragraph in the book when she learned that Nick Itch’s real name is Ivan Itch!!! Ten minutes of pure convulsive ecstatic hilarity!
Oh my goodness… what fun!!!
Thanks for sharing your joy. Love all your books!!!
Mira (44) and Eveliina (9)
