Daniel Pinkwater on the Surreal

Today, we are favored with two recommendations from children’s book author and illustrator Daniel Pinkwater:

D.B. Johnson’s beautiful Magritte’s Marvelous Hat   From D.B. Johnson’s Magritte’s Marvelous Hat


Brave Potatoes by Toby Speed and Barry Root.  Like so many wonderful books, Brave Potatoes is currently out-of-print, but thanks to the wonder of the internet, you can find yourself a copy online.  There are a number of them at Alibris.

After all, children deserve to read line like: “Have you heard the story yet of Idaho and Juliet?  A spud by any other name is still a spud, and tastes the same.”
