So picture this, I’m a 33 year old adult woman wandering around Barnes & Noble. My husband and i walk through the kids section (we do that even though we don’t have one of our own yet.) I stop in an aisle and say “Oh my god, it’s my chicken book!!!”
It’s even more entertaining then when I was a kid. I’m now having fun searching out all your books. All this time I’ve heard your commentaries on NPR and I never knew it was one of my all-time favorite authors. You were even that caller on car talk that made me laugh. you’ve been there for a laugh all the time and i had no idea.
Thanks for making my childhood and now adulthood fun.
You're welcome. But why is it that after 19 years, and more than 600 commentaries on All Things Considered, with the announcer saying, ""Daniel Pinkwater is an author, etc., etc,"" and after 10 years doing talks about children's books with Scott Simon on Saturdays, at the end of every one of which he kindly says, ""Daniel Pinkwater's latest book is....,"" people constantly say ""All this time I've heard your commentaries on NPR and I never knew it was one of my all-time favorite authors?"" Do they all assume it is another guy named Daniel Pinkwater?
