Dear Mr. Pinkwater,
My 6th grade language arts class is reading Fat Men from Space, and they are enjoying it very much. They were curious as to how you came up with the story? What inspired you?
Also, can we buy recordings of Chinwag Theatre?

Well, it's a true story. I improved it a little. No, you may not buy tapes of Chinwag Theater at this time. You have to get your local public radio station to carry it. Then you can tape it yourself. 100 letters to the Station Manager and Program Director should do the trick.
