Dear Mr. Pinkwater, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your books, I am a sixth grader in Mc Near Elementary in Petuluma, California. I was sick of reading all of the depressing children’s books that are basically the only kids books today.
Then while browsing for a more upbeat book at my local book store I saw one of my favorite teacher’s, my 5th grade teacher. I asked her for the names of some good books. She is also a big fan of yours and recommended Lizard Music. I loved it and asked her for another one of your books, she gave me your book of 5 novels. I first read The Snarkout Boys and The Avocado of Death. I really enjoyed it and my question is are there more Snarkout Boys and what are the names and how can I find them? I also love how the Chicken man always appears. I am now reading Alan Mendelsohn, The Boy From Mars and I also like it a lot.
Your are one of my favorite writers ever and you write funny, entreating, and unique books, so thankyou for that.
That makes you one of my favorite readers ever. There would be far less point to it if it weren't for you and the other 999 neat people.
