A house inspired by “The Big Orange Splot”

October 30, 2013

From Beth Spencer:

Here is a link to a recent newspaper article that mentions The Big Orange Splot. I only wish that the writer had mentioned the author of this book, Daniel Manus Pinkwater.


Another item that the article does not mention is that each attendee of the Saturday night reception received a copy of The Big Orange Splot. This was the architect’s idea. He loves the book!

New book: “Mrs. Noodlekugel and Four Blind Mice”

September 24, 2013

From Jennifer Laughran:

Nick and Maxine and their babysitter Mrs Noodlekugel (along with, of course, her cat butler and four magical mice) are back! The first MRS NOODLEKUGEL adventure is now available in paperback, and as of today, there is a brand-new installment in the series: MRS NOODLEKUGEL AND FOUR BLIND MICE.

Four farsighted mice get glasses — and a talking cat solves a family mystery — as the charmingly eccentric Mrs. Noodlekugel returns… It’s all a day in the life of Daniel Pinkwater’s whimsical characters, in a chapter-book series whose comical tone and cozy illustrations are sure to keep young readers coming back for more.


The book is available from your favorite bookseller, online or offline.
