Dear Daniel,

Think second grade. Think second graders reading aloud in a small group. Think second graders reading a collection of your books aloud in a small group.

Which books? And in what order? I would very much appreciate your advice. TOOTHGNASHER is a particular favorite. Poor Mr. Sandy. I wonder what type of cologne he wears too much of.

I noticed many references to food on your page. Next time you’re in South Carolina (First in fireworks), I’ll treat you to a barbeque sandwich with mustard and slaw.

Daniel replies:

I only write them. It is for others, wiser and better educated than I am to decide what books, in what order, for what ages and what groups. Do I still get the sandwich?
