Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

Here are some comments from my students who were hanging around talking about _The Big Orange Splot_ recently when they should have been doing their homework instead:

“The Big Orange Splot is the raddest book in the world” –Miles, 2nd grade.

“I love the Big Orange Splot. It’s the greatest book in the whole wide world” –Nathalie, 2nd grade.

“I haven’t read it yet, but I’m sure I’ll love it.” –Justin, 3rd grade.

“I liked it. It was fun.” Spencer, 3rd grade.

We even have a Big Orange Splot bulletin board up right now that has been very popular. The alligator is the coolest part.

Thanks for passing along the discerning and insightful comments on Big Orange Splot. What can I say? They're right.
