He's authored almost a hundred books, all of which are excellent with the exception of two or three. Radio listeners may recognize Daniel Pinkwater as a popular pundit and children's book reviewer on NPR. He used to reside in Los Angeles, where he attended a posh private school for the children of Hollywood stars and frequented The Hat. He shares a two-hundred-year-old farmhouse in New York's Hudson River Valley with his wife, illustrator and novelist Jill Pinkwater, and their dogs and cats.
