Dear Mr Pinkwater
I have always wanted to tell you that when I was in 3rd grade I was not very interested in reading until I picked up the book you wrote Lizard Music. I had a pet lizard at the time so it caught my eye. After I read your book I became very interested in reading and have been a voracious reader ever since. Thank you for inspiring my lifelong love of reading!

This is the best compliment a writer like me can possibly get. I can't resist saying I get it fairly regularly. Still, it feels wonderful--thanks for telling me.
