Daniel Pinkwater is the author and sometimes illustrator of more than 80 (and counting) wildly popular books. These books include_5 Novels, The Yggyssey, Lizard Music and Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl. He is also an occasional commentator on National Public Radio's All Things Considered and appears regularly on Weekend Edition Saturday, where he reviews exceptional kids' books with host Scott Simon. Daniel also contributes to Wondertime, and has in the past been spotted on the pages of The New York Times Magazine, OMNI, and many other fine publications. In collaboration with Tony Auth, Daniel wrote an unfortunately short-lived comic strip, NORB, which was critically acclaimed by Jules Feiffer and Chaim Potok, and no one else. (It was really good, though.) Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Pinkwater grew up in Memphis, Chicago and Los Angeles, and studied art at Bard College. He lives in New York.
