My name is Brendan and I am in 4th Grade at Valley Montessori School in Livermore California. My dad says I have a bad attitude towards school. I had to do 2 book reports by the same author. I wanted to do my reports on Dav Pilkey, but my teachers don’t like Captain Underpants. So, since your name and his name start with the same letters, I chose your books.

I read Fat Men From Outer Space and Alan Mendelsohn, the Boy from Mars for the book reports. But I have also read Space Guys.

I have some questions.

Have you met anyone who is really from Mars?

Where can I get a good cup of fleegix?

Why do you smoke that nasty cigar?

P.S. Thank you for having this great website. It will help me write my author report.

Daniel replies:

First, the answers to your questions: 1. Yes; 2. There is a world Fleegix shortage, and you can't get it anywhere; 3. I quit smoking cigars almost 2 years ago, and I think you should quit them too. Now I want to know which author you enjoyed more, Dav Pilkey, or Daniel Pinkwater? I want it noted that I have no problem spelling my own name.
