Scarecrow Press usually sells their works to libraries and schools
(you won't find this one at your local bookstore). Here's how to
contact the publisher:
4720 Boston Way
Lanham, Maryland 20706
Or go to their
and order it online.
Remember, it can't be a Number 1 best-seller without your support!!!
It's also available from Amazon.com! If you'd like to
order it from them, just go to
Unca Marvy's Famous Book.
It started off life on Amazon as their 948,602nd best seller (Unca Marvy
made it to the Top Million!!!). As of December 1, 1998 it had moved up all
the way to 766,990. (Big cheer!!!) Then (wow!) to 581,009 on January 1.
Wait, wait, it gets better: on Febuary 1, 1999 it had risen to 392,040 on
its inexorable climb to Number 1. And now [pause for drum roll],
on February 15, it's all the way up to 94,973 (that's an increase of 845,949
positions in only 3½ months; Hemingway, eat your heart out).
Bless you all.
For those of you who prefer, you can also get it online at
