Hello to Daniel Pinkwater. I work with dyslexic children who love your books being read to them but have a very hard time reading them. Do you have plans to write any books that are easy to read? I suspect it may be difficult to control the vocabulary you use but I think there would be a great market – and much appreciation by teachers and kids — if you wrote one. I know you do not talk down to kids. But kids with reading problems love to be able to read fun books as long as there are not too many words. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Daniel replies:

Are you talking about novels by me, or picture books by me?
