Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

For all your fans who can’t find the Pinkwater books they need, I recommend library surplus booksales. There are many books there that are too worn for library use but can have a new life in the hands of a gentle reader.

A few years ago at a University book store I bought a book that I thought many of the characters in your books would like: Zen Speaks: Shouts of Nothingness by Tsai Chih Chung (trans. Brian Bruya). It’s Zen stories in comic book form! The art is beautiful and each story is introduced by a monk who looks strikingly like your jacket photo.

I am glad that I became a librarian so that I can introduce your books to even more impressionable minds.

So it's your fault! I only write them--I can't help that, it's my nature to do so--but you introduce them to impressionable minds! You admitted it! I feel so much better.
