Dear Random House

Dear Random House,

My daughter absolutely loves your Step into Reading toddler book Super Friends: Flying High.

Unfortunately, as of this writing, there are no other Level 1 Step into Reading superhero books in the series and few books overall featuring strong female heroines. I think it would be really great and empowering if you followed up the first book with a Level 1 Super Friends book featuring Wonder Woman. I know, there are Barbie and Disney Princess titles, but I believe Wonder Woman is galvanizing in ways those characters aren't. And Wonder Woman has a new look and costume that is well-suited for a new generation of girls.

I tried to send you feedback about this using your Feedback link but the form did not submit correctly.

Then I considered pitching the idea to you, but you made it quite clear on your FAQs that you only deal with agents.
"Like most big publishers, Random House only accepts manuscripts submitted by an agent--the volume of materials we receive is just too large to accept unsolicited submissions or ideas."
Running out of ideas, I decided to write this post in the hope that someone in your organization monitors posts that include the keywords "Random House". If you're reading this, please consider a Level 1 Step into Reading Wonder Woman book.

Note: I'd be happy to make a more detailed business case for this and author the text.

Thank you.
