malcolm and noah go shopping

Years ago I wrote a children's story called Malcolm and Noah Go Shopping, based on an old Far Side cartoon. I sent it to a couple of publishers and got one response that said my story was not publishable because the snakes did not act consistent with their species. In the story, the snakes end up making friends with a hamster. This week, BBC News ran this story about a snake in the Tokyo Zoo who befriended his "snack hamster."

In light of this new information, I offer my story



Peace,
Milton

I'm just grateful there's no recipe to go with this one.
Come visit over at RLP chat sometime.

I love your story! I think you should try sending it off again. Try to an agent instead of a publisher. You might have to send it to many several places.

Oh, and I found your link on Real Live Preacher. I'm enjoying your site very much.
