Since I was outdoors with my dog and my earphones, I couldn’t take notes on your long (NPR) conversation with Scott Simon on that wonderful, fabulous, unparalleled book that I think you called MOONLIGHT OVER MANHATTAN but I can’t find it under any title search and my wonderful, unparalleled etc. local bookstore for kids has never heard of it and I want to order a dozen copies for our school book fair but I can’t!
Can you help? Thanks so much. (P.S., love your commentaries and love your books and so do my kids.)
That's because the title is MUSIC OVER MANHATTAN, by Mark Karlins, published by Doubleday Books for Young Readers. I hear they sold the whole first printing, so there may be a tiny delay until your bookseller gets copies. Or you can get a 20% discount from amazon.com (on my books too! I think 5 NOVELS is only $8.76 or thereabouts).
Thanks for writing.
