I can’t be sure — it’s hard to tell from here — but I suspect that this letter came from a GIANT named Brady.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Could there be any other explanation?
Wow, you sent me the coolest letter ever! Kind of huge, don’t you think?
Thank you for reading Jigsaw Jones: The Case of the Christmas Snowman. There’s plenty more where that came from!
I also loved your drawings. You’ve got a lot of talent, young man. Keep it up.
You wondered where I live. It’s Top Secret!!! No, actually, I live in upstate New York, a town called Delmar, just south of Albany. Our nearest river is the Hudson and the nearest Duncan Donuts shop is five minutes away. The way a car needs gas, I need coffee to run. In fact, if you ever see me stalled on the side of the road, bring me a cup of regular with milk, no sugar. I’ll perk right up!
I am 57 years old. But I don’t look any older than 54. It’s the little things, Brady.
I LOVE that one of your two favorite lines from the book was, “With what?” That was a good day when I wrote that line.
Ah, sweet inspiration.
Hey, have a great summer. You addressed your stamped envelope to your elementary school, so I hope you get it before school starts up again.
Keep reading books, any books at all, even mine.
