NOODLE&DROOLY_HJ_USComing in May 2015: “Mrs. Noodlekugel and Drooly the Bear”

    When their father decides to compete to be speed-knitting champion of the world, Nick and Maxine are happy to stay with their babysitter, Mrs. Noodlekugel, along with her talking cats and four mice who wear glasses. What they don’t expect is a dripping-wet, whiskered man in the kitchen the next morning! Captain Noodlekugel has left his seafaring life to train animals for the circus, and he’s even brought with him a hefty bear named Drooly for practice. But whenever he tries to teach Drooly to dance, the bear wobbles and falls asleep on the tulips. When Drooly goes missing, the siblings must try to figure out where a big clumsy bear might go!

You can pre-order the book from the publisher, Random House.

How Daniel Pinkwater became my personal guru

October 6, 2014

From The Jewish Daily Forward:

Daniel Pinkwater, 72, is a onetime Fumetti model, an art therapy school dropout, a former Zen Buddhist, a former cult member, a former NPR commentator, a former sculptor, the alleged destructor of Harvey Kurtzman’s Help! Magazine, a gentleman farmer, a decent chess player, a bad minder of friends’ girlfriends, a surrealist, a bohemian, and an old schoolmate of Errol Flynn’s son. He looks like a bald Allan Sherman, if that means anything to you. (It doesn’t mean much to him. “I do remember Alan Sherman. Mildly amusing,” he told me.) His father was a Jewish gangster from Warsaw, about his mother he has mostly bad things to say, his wife Jill Pinkwater is a writer, and he has the greatest radio voice you’ve ever heard, Carl Kasell included.

What’s new on the Pinkwater Podcast?

July 14, 2014

downloadWell, for starters, last week we aired a never-before-heard and previously unpublished story by Daniel, called “Kat Hats.” You should listen to it. Also, we’ve started serializing “Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl,” Daniel’s recent novel about Big Audrey, a lovely gal from another plane of existence who just happens to have whiskers.

Comments on the website

Hi all,

I’ve disabled commenting on all pages other than the Talk to DP Forum. While I originally meant the commenting system to be used for generating discussion amongst readers, it was being used more often for sending messages to Daniel Pinkwater. Just to reiterate, kindly use the Talk to DP Forum if you’d like to send the big cheese a message.

Thanks!
