Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I discovered Hoboken N.J. one day in the fourth grade, when I was assigned to do a book report on the wonderful book, Lizard Music. Later, I discovered the worlds of Java Jack and the snark-out boys. Now, I read The Big Orange Splot to my three year old and have fallen in love with your work again. As the author of my son’s favorite book, I thought you might be able to help with a particular problem… potty training. I figured if anyone would have good advice on this subject, it would be you. Thank you for existing.

Any reply at all will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Ryan Noble

Now if your son were a German Shepherd, then I could give you some useful advice. But, I am not completely sure if the method would transfer from dogs to humans. Also, those liver-treats may not be terribly digestible for people-puppies.
