Author Info
Daniel Pinkwater
Daniel Pinkwater has written a number of books for children and young adults and has been a regular commentator on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered". He is most well-know for the middle grade novels THE HOBOKEN CHICKEN EMERGENCY and LIZARD MUSIC.
Praise
"Daniel Pinkwater is so obviously the funniest writer of children's books that he should be made a Living National Treasure....B-movies, science fiction, satire, touches of mystical philosophy and nostalgia--these are the ingredients of Pinkwater's novels. For readers of any age, the result is as tasty as a serving of Horthian Florff, indisputably the finest junk food in the known universe."
From the Publisher
Annotation The complete text of five novels by the popular author together in one volume. Selections include ALAN MENDELSOHN: THE BOY FROM MARS, SLAVES OF SPIEGEL, THE LAST GURU, YOUNG ADULT NOVEL, and THE SNARKOUT BOYS AND THE AVOCADO OF DEATH.
First Line I got off to a bad start at Bat Masterson Junior High School. My family had moved from my old school district during the summer, and I didn't know a single kid at the school. On top of that, it turned out that the kids at Bat Masterson put a lot of emphasis on how you look. This created a problem--I am a short, portly kid, and I wear glasses.
Editors Note Unavailable for several years, the five complete novels gathered in this volume have won Daniel Pinkwater legions of fans since the first was published in 1978. Here are comments from three of those admirers, responding to the announcement that this omnibus was in the works:
