Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

John Scezieca (did I spell it right?) extolled the virtues of your books for middle-school reading in the Time Warp Trio’s “Summer Reading is Killing Me.” The book list for middle schoolers that he has says “pretty much anything by Daniel Pinkwater.” Have you ever met John S? Are you friends?

Daniel replies:

I have never met Jon Scieszka, and we are not friends--but we have friendly feelings for one another, I think. Actually, there is a federal law that Scieszka and I cannot be in the same place at the same time, because of possible warpage.
