Still going after thirty-one years and 72 printings

Hi everyone,
Yesterday I checked on an old standby of mine, WAKE UP, SUN! to see how it was getting along on Amazon.com. The book came out in 1986 and according to my most recent royalty statement from Random House it has sold 1,184,498 copies. As of yesterday the stats posted included: Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars, 38 customer reviews
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #4,570 in Books, #18 in Farm Animals
#48 in Beginner Readers

WAKE UP, SUN! usually weighs in around 18,000 – 25,000 so I’m delighted to see it gain this much ground. Somebody somewhere must have ordered a bunch at one time. By tomorrow it will probably return to normal but for now it’s fun to watch.
