    Dear Jack Prelutsky:
    We at Madhubun Educational Books (India) are currently working on an ELT series for primary students. We wish to use the following poem in one of our books:
    Deep in Our Refrigerator
    Since the series is meant for primary students, we need to keep the prices low. We'd be greatly obliged therefore, if you could grant us gratis permission to use the said material. We would, of course, give credit as advised by you.
    Please respond at the earliest so that we can go ahead with the process.
    Thanks and regards:

    I think Jack Prelutsky is a great poet. Our 5th grade class is doing poems for Halloween on Jack Prelutsky. He is so creative in his poetry. Each one of our classmates has a spooky line. He is a great poet.
