Hello Mr Pinkwater,

I like your books every much. I recently decided that I would like to be a kindergarten teacher and write decent kid stories at the same time. Everybody tells me it’s a bad job. What do you think of it and do you have any advice at all?



Daniel replies:

Writing decent kids' stories is a great job, and you're approaching it intelligently, since indecent ones are impossible to get published. As to teaching kindergarten, I hear it's ok after the first year when you catch all the colds.
