Not too many weeks ago you were on weekend edition and talked and read from a “children’s book” with brilliant rhymes and images. I cannot remember the name or the author. I kind of inferred that the author was you using a pen name but that might just be me. Please! what was the name of the book? Thank you.

Daniel replies:

You're not the first to suspect that it was really me, and not Calef Brown, who wrote POLKA BATS AND OCTOPUS SLACKS...which does give me an idea. But the highly talented poet is Brown, not Pink. Buy the book. Let someone make a dollar, even if it isn't Captain Pinky.
