Dear Mr. Pinkwater, your books, Alan Mendelsohn the Boy From Mars and Lizard Music are two of my very favorite books from childhood. I am now an elementary teacher and have often read aloud one or the other to my sixth grade classes. Though, honestly, Alan Mendelsohn is the one I read most. As education has changed over the years I have less time for simply reading aloud to my students, however, I would love to be able to share your books with them to read on their own. Sadly, these books are hard to find. I always imagine them to be the kind of books children steal from libraries because they just can't bear to give them back. Wouldn't a Kindle edition be just the thing to continue giving children the joy of corn bread at the Bermuda Triangle Chili Parlor?

Yes!  I completely agree!
