Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

Recently, my 8-year-old daughter, for a third-grade project, wrote and illustrated a short book (1,000 words or so) which she called “Mt. Everest’s Vacation”.

1) Do you know of any publisher which might publish and print a few copies of this book at *no cost to us* (something between a vanity press and a real publishing company)

2) Would you read this if I e-mailed it to you? I understand if you don’t want every third-grader in the country sending you a thousand-page manuscript.

3) I am forty-five years old, and I’m the only one in my family that appreciates Chin Wag Theater.

Daniel replies:

1. No. Not at ""no cost to you.""

2. No.

3. Maybe the others just don't want to listen with you.
