Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I am very happy that you are finally writing a book with a girl as its main character (the Yggysey). The Snarkout Boys series did have Rat, but she was not the MAIN character. Likewise, Henrietta was female, but she was not human and couldn’t speak.

Thank you,

A fan

Actually, forthcoming are _two_ books with female main characters--one happens to be a chicken, but she speaks, and the other is someone you will recognize.
