Dear Mr. Pinkwater,
I was not much of a reader when I was in middle school (25 years ago), until I met your books! I read every single Pinkwater book I could get my hands on. It was such an exhilarating experience to discover books and ones filled with silliness and intrique at that, a rare combination. My classmate and I wrote you a letter filled with questions including "do you write about fat people because you are fat?" to which you responded by cassette tape.

The correspondence with you was one of my most treasured grade-school memories and I just wanted to say thank you.
Sincerely, Tammy.

Daniel replies:

It is for me to thank you.  So, thanks.
