Hi Mr. Pinkwater,

I am an elementary school library media specialist. Last week I read your book Author’s Day to my students.(We had had an author visit that went well the week before.) I would like to know when you lived in Hoboken. My grandmother ran a corner store in there. Do you know what flavor ice cream and topping one uses to make a Hoboken sundae? Hint, one begins with c and one begins with p. Thanks for reading this and writing good books.

Well, when I lived in Hoboken, which was during the administration of Louie D', a Hoboken sundae was chocolate ice cream with marinara sauce, but fashions change.
