Hello Mr.Pinkwater!

I work in the children’s dept. of a library and discovered a book entitled “The Chicken Doesn’t Skate” by Gordon Korman. Are you aware that he named HIS chicken Henrietta? Hmph! I do not think that is right! Your chicken is the orginal Henrietta and it should be the ONLY Henrietta. Just thought you should know…….

Thank you for writing one of my fav books!

Daniel replies:

Henrietta is a popular name for chickens. I take Mr. Korman's chicken as homage to the greatest Henrietta--mine.
