Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I have listened to your show for many years, and enjoy your work very much. You have told some Great Stories!

When I first heard you on the radio, many years ago, I wondered about your name, Pinkwater. I was reminded of “God Bless You Mr. Rosewater” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

I have not however seen any of your books though in my many trips to the toy store to buy books for my daughter (3 years old). Next time, I will look harder for yours.

Keep up the good work,

Andrew Rein

Last time I was in a book store, I noticed there were a lot of toys, so I guess it makes sense to expect to find books in a toy store. Imagine the quizzical expression on the face of the great Kurt Vonnegut when we were seated together at a banquet, and I sneezed, and someone said, ""God bless you, Mr. Pinkwater.""
