Description

Daniel Manus Pinkwater (born November 15, 1941 in Memphis, Tennessee, United States) 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. His collections of NPR essays (most notably Fish Whistle) explain that many elements of his fiction are based on real events and people he encountered in his youth. Pinkwater is a trained artist and has illustrated many of his books in the past, although for more recent works that task has passed to his wife Jill Pinkwater. His artistic style varies from work to work, with some books illustrated in computer drawings, others in woodcuts and others in Magic Marker. He does not work in any set category. Rather, his work is intended for a wide variety of ages, with books ranging from picture books to adult fiction.

Pinkwater varies his name slightly between books (for instance, "Daniel Pinkwater", "Daniel M. Pinkwater", "Daniel Manus Pinkwater", "D. Manus Pinkwater"). Allegedly, he claims that he does this in order to annoy the librarians who have to catalogue his books. His parents were Jewish and emigrated from Poland before he was born. He describes his father as a "ham-eating, iconoclastic Jew."
