Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I am a homeschooling mom in the midst of teaching Pinkwater philosophy to my nine-year-old son, Amos. It is his favorite subject. We laugh so hard, it hardly seems like school. Our favorite: Borgel. He reminds us of his late great grandfather. We think you should join forces with William Steig and create a picture book for the younger set, as my 4-year-old’s education would not be complete without you. We think you and he would have a lot in common.

Daniel replies:

That was my thought too. Hardly seems like school. I would rather be taken out of the curriculum, and put in the entertainment category. Homeschoolers are always too serious, in my experience.
