Letter to the Children!

Y’know, Troops, obviously the stories that I wrote are for the most intelligent, cultured, erudite readers of all.

I mean, if you're not someone with a high IQ, how could you ever get the full import and impact of the minor masterworks that I have so proudly penned?

Yet, there's one type of reader that I've been omitting, and it isn't fair!

I am, of course, referring to young children! Imagine children who haven't reached the mental peaks that would enable them to fully enjoy the majesty of the Marvel masterworks, which they're about to discover later on!

So for them, I have started "Stan Lee's Kids Universe," books for very young children-- books about dinosaurs and pussycats and little doggie wow wow's.

Naturally, they’re not for the average reader of the very, very erudite literary stories that I normally do, but they’re for beginning readers.

So any beginning readers you know of… any little children who are desperate for something that has to do with the world of Stan Lee… remember, at your bookshop are copies of books with the imprint "Stan Lee's Kids Universe," and I'm sure that your very young brothers and sisters -- or even strangers -- will be ever grateful to you for them.

Excelsior!

I'm a little surprised that this didn't already exist. After all, DC Comics gave us kid stuff like The Super Dictionary.... On second thought, maybe that's why.

More power to ya!
Stan, don't underestimate little kids' intelligence. I was reading X-Men when I was 4.
Dear Stan, as a special education teacher, I'm very worried about where you are going with 'little doggie wow wow's'.

Kids love comics and I'd love to see your books with limited / simple vocabulary but please use 'real names' when you write.

You have stunned my co-teacher's vocabulary to 'little doggie wow wow's' as she wonders what that book will look like. She can just see her class running around the room yelling 'go, little doggie wow wow's, go'. Please help!
This is PERFECT!! MY granddaughter will be 4 in September and is right on the edge of reading! She (and her parents) will LOVE this!
I'll be interested to see these. Sometimes my brain wants the simple no-thought-required stuff. ;)
That's such a great idea! Good job Stan lee !!!i will definately get my little cousins some of them!

Awesome! My four year old will probably love these. Of course, he's already a comic shop regular, and he getsthe kiddie version of Guardians of the Galaxy with my pull list already ;)

Thank you 😊
I sure hope it'll help my lil brother. 😕 I really want him to know how awesome reading is.
Go on Brazil
HEi, Lee! Welcome on Brazil, please! Visit us a day! Please "Homero of the Twenty Century", come on here! Salutes Amigo american comic-man! Great amazing pal! Please, come in Brazil! signed: with love of a Brazilianist...Thanks!!!
Stan, Please denounce Donald Trump publicly ASAP
Dear Stan,

We spent some time together years ago when you were a guest at a few conventions I ran. You might recall me--both shows were held in very large venues and our crowd was, meager to be kind to myself.. At the time I was with a very attractive Blonde young woman.

In my comic career I worked closely with Carol Kahlish and did a great deal to help increase and sustain for some years, the large print runs at Marvel.

I always found you to be a highly bright very decent man. Your accomplishments speak for themselves.

The core moral fabric of the Marvel Universe is the antithesis to what Trump is and what he represents. I fully understand that business, comic books, and politics are poor bedfellows. However, in this unique case, many of the people you can reach may not vote or may vote Trump. I beg you to use your enormous stature to speak out against this anti-semitic racist demagogue who is 100% unfit to hold this office for a myriad of factual reasons.

I know how busy you are. I hope, against reasonable odds, that you see and consider this at least a week before this election. If anyone reads this who has the capacity to get this to Stan ASAP, please do so.

All my best,

Jay Maybruck
