Daniel Pinkwater is crazy about writing and has been trying to learn how to do it right for fifty years. He has written about one hundred books, all but two or three of them good.
Other books published by Houghton Mifflin include The Neddiad, The Education of Robert Nifkin, and the popular series about Irving and Muktuk, two perennially bad polar bears. Many but not all of his books are somewhat autobiographical.
People who own radios or use iTunes may know Pinkwater as a popular commentator and children’s book reviewer on National Public Radio. He lives with his wife, the illustrator and novelist Jill Pinkwater, and their dogs and cats in a two-hundred-year-old farmhouse in New York’s Hudson River valley.
