Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I was an avid reader of your books back in middle school (I am now about 1 and 3/4 years out of college). Recently, on a trip home, I came upon my old books in my little brother’s room and re-read my favorite story, The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death.

Like Walter Galt’s dad, I am a big fan of avocados. Re-reading Avocado of Death has made me wonder if delicacies such as avocado pies and avocado fritters do in fact exist, and, if so, where I can obtain some. Or at least where I can get a recipe or two. So, if you have any avocado pastry recipes, would you be so kind as to share them with me, or at least point me to the appropriate cookbook/website?

If there are no extant recipes, I will have to find someone with a better background in the culinary arts than myself, so that I can make one up, in which case I will of course send you the recipe to enjoy and share with your other avocado-loving fans.



Daniel replies:

Oh yes! Do that! And then come back here and tell us about chocolate chip avocado ice cream, and hot avocado soup, and other wonders!
