Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I am in third grade and I'm writing a book report on The Hoboken Chicken Emergency and also a biography on you. I was wondering where you do your writing and if you ever have trouble coming up with ideas to write about?


Daniel replies:

Hello, Aidan --

I do my writing at an old desk. I got it second-hand, it used to belong to an office in some big company. It is made of steel, and has drawers, and is sort of an ugly grey color with a little bit of rust. The top is white, and made of stuff they used to call """"formica"""" and use for kitchen counters. I am very happy with my desk. I have had it since 1987. I think I paid $25 for it. One cool thing about my desk is that it works sort of like an antenna of some kind. If I sit quietly at my desk, I can hear radio broadcasts...they may come from other planets, I'm not sure. All I know is that when I sit at my desk all kinds of idea come into my head. So that is the answer to your second question...I don't have any trouble coming up with long as I have this desk.

Good luck with your book report and biography. Be sure to mention how handsome I am.
