Can anyone help me get a readable copy of The Blue Man for a reasonable price? I would be fine with a reprint or even a photocopy. I recall buying it like 47 years ago from schoolastic books and thouroughly enjoying it many times. I must have lost my copy decades ago and would very much like to read it one more.
Any assistance would, of course, be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Andy. And the same to you and yours. Thanks also for all your encouragement and support while we tried to pull this off. As things stand now, I do not think it will ever work out, but I really appreciate your efforts. Have a great New Year.

Hi, Chris! I hope you & your family have a great holiday season. Here's hoping that 2014 will be the year you straighten out all the legal details and bring the whole Sinbad series back to print!
Regards... Andy Valencia

Interesting to see you saying that. Awhile ago, you told us you were the biggest idiot on this message board. Glad you have broadened your sights because the whole state of Florida is quite an achievement! Tomorrow, The World. But seriously, why do you keep posting this nonsense to the Kin Platt Message Board?

Hi Chris, I just sent you invites from both FB and LinkedIn. Hope it's not too late, didn't realize the previous message failed. I guess these social media sites are more restrictive than they used to be. Soon as we're connected I'll send you a message with my address. My Kin Platt book search has paid off with one of the Hitman series (They're Coming to Kill You, Jane)so far. Picked up several of the eBooks last week and am enjoying them all very much. Cynthia - Let me know if I can give you any help. Not sure what I can do but I'll do what I can.

I'm not on Facebook much, but I did like the Kin Platt page today (6/28) and sent a message with my address. Hopefully you'll get it! You can let me know here if not or if you have a personal Facebook page. I'm not a frequent user of Facebook, so who knows if I know what I'm doing or not!
I know I sure would love a hardcover copy of The Blue Man!
My poor falling apart original copy of Sinbad and Me is still with me, purchased as a child from the bookmobile that came to my little school. Cost me all of 60 cents! I loved the story so much it was one of the very few books that stayed with me during hard times and various moves.
I bought a better copy on eBay last year for $60 and felt lucky to get it!

Hey Phil, didn't get anything via FB, either. Maybe if you LinkIn to me on LI first, that is, connect, it will work there, or you can friend me on FB or friend Kin Platt on HIS FB page, which gets you to me.

Thanks for the kind offer, Chris. Of course I'd love to get a copy of the reprinted HC edition. Tried to send a message via LinkdIn but I think it failed so I messaged you through FB instead.

Hey Cynthia, if you AND Phil would like a reissued copy of the hardcover Blue Man, I would be happy to send them to you. I had copies of the book reproduced identically back in 2005 and still have a few left. I don't want to post my email address here, and not sure I even can, but you can get to me via FB or LinkedIn. Just give me your mailing addresses.

I have to admit, I love the hardcover dustjacket art for The Blue Man best, but I also like the paperback cover, since that's the version I own. I keep looking for the hardcover, but no luck yet. I was probably lucky to find the paperback, it is pretty hard to come by as well.
