. . .and, frankly, if the next envelope contains the first three chapters of Stuart Little from E. B. himself, I'll send them back, too."

Simply defies comment, don't it? :Wha:

Yeah, but it's my own fault. The dark nature of their cutting-edge middle reader and young adult list should have told me they weren't in the mood for a story about a griffin that ghost-writes novels and a dragon who paints murals.

Live and learn. :Sun:

Wow. Such a positive comment!

Good thing they're not dealing with a more fragile ego.

Well one comment would be: this person is a mug. I'd have Stuart Little. Are they insane? For my money, not an editor, at least not a good one.

I agree, Torgo. :)
Joe, no matter how you take this comment, it still stinks. Sorry about the rejection. Good luck in getting it accepted elsewhere!
