I will think about Jean, who has been in and out of my life for years and years, and whose books will always be in my life. She was one of the people who make one proud to be a human being on this complicated earth.

Thank you for your wonderful books, Jean. And thank you for letting me be a part of the world of The Pushcart War...

The world of books feels the loss of Jean's passing. May her memory be a blessing; may young people still find their way to THE PUSHCART WAR, and the brilliant THE TOOTHPASTE MILLIONAIRE. Let those of us who write honor her Jeff Gottesfeld
