Daniel Manus Pinkwater is an author of mostly children's books and is an occasional commentator on National Public Radio. He attended Bard College. Well-known books include Lizard Music, The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death, Fat Men from Space, Borgel, and the picture book The Big Orange Splot. Pinkwater has also illustrated many of his books in the past, although for more recent works that task has passed to his wife Jill Pinkwater.

Daniel Pinkwater isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

Did you know that the Jim Henson Company had a plan to adapt Borgel into a Muppetish production? It’s true, at least according to Muppet Wiki.


More interestingly, there are a series of production paintings made for the project by Wayne White. You can find them here (first 4 out of 19).
