Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

My name is John Marshall. I am 10 years old. I go to school at Burton Valley School in Lafayette, California. I read the book, Mush, A Dog from Space, and I really liked it. I want to know if you are planning to make a sequel to this book. I think it would be a great idea.

Daniel replies:

John Marshall - I have written a sequel to ""Mush, a Dog from Space."" I sent it to Atheneum Books, the company that published the first book. They said they wanted to publish it, and Jill even started to do the drawings. Then they said that they could sell more copies of shorter books, picture books, so they wanted one of those instead of the Mush book. So we did a picture book instead. I still want them to publish the Mush sequel. It wouldn't make sense to take it to another publisher, because Atheneum has the first book. You can ask Mr. Lanman at Atheneum, 1230 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10020 if he is planning to publish it. He would be happy to hear from you.
