Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

Thank you for writing Alan Mendelson and the Boy from Mars. Being a writer myself (working on getting paid), I found it perhaps the most-inspiring and thought-provoking story I have ever read, and I have read this many books (I am making a huge stack symbol with my arms).

Take care,

James Dryden

P.S. I hope I spelled Mendelson correctly.

Daniel replies:

You may have spelled Alan Mendelsohn correctly, but you appear to have typed it wrong--twice. Thanks for reading it, which is more important than spelling it.
