Hi Mr. Pinkwater! We are in Junior Great Books and will be discussing your story Blue Moose on Friday, March 11th. We have a couple of questions for you!

1. What was your inspiration for the main characters?

2. Have you ever met the blue moose or Mr. Breton?

3. Do you know the recipe for Mr. Breton’s clam chowder or gingerbread? We would love to try it!

4. Any words of wisdom or advice you’d like to share with us?

Thank you for taking the time to respond to us. We look forward to your answer!

Daniel replies:

1. There was a real Mr. Breton! We wandered into his restaurant in the wilds of Maine.

2. See above. Met a moose too--but he was more blueish than blue.

3. Breton's recipes were secret--but you can look up some, and try them. Decide which ones are Bretonish.

4. Words of wisdom can be found in books, all you have to do is read them.
