Tooth Gnasher Superflash

Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I read constantly to my son when he was a child and I have always remembered one specific detail from one of your books very clearly. ( At least I think it was one of your books but it may not have been Tooth Gnasher Superflash which for some reason I no longer have. And I keep thinking there were aliens in this book.)  Did you dedicate one of your books “to your cat who threw up on your keyboard” ?  That came to mind today while I was attending a class online which my son was teaching and his cat kept jumping up onto his desk and keyboard.

In addition to my question, I would like to thank you for writing so many wonderful books.  When the time comes when we are able to venture outside, I plan to go the library (usually my second home) and look at many of your books again.

Stay well – Donna Tukel

I had a cat who distinguished himself by throwing up into my printer, not keyboard...but I don't remember dedicating a book to him. Maybe I did. Maybe I was trying to be nice to him so he wouldn't hurl into my working equipment.
