Happy birthday, Daniel Pinkwater

By webmastered

We’re very happy to celebrate Daniel’s 71st birthday! Here are some birthday greetings from fans and readers:

Happy Birthday, Mr. Pinkwater! (Not to be confused with  God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater,” a book by another author.) Your fans all join you today in celebrating your existence. May you long continue to make the world funnier and more bearable by your presence in it. Blessings on you always. Sincerely, Alan Meyers

Dear Daniel,
Happiest of birthdays to a gentleman and a scholar, to an all-around good guy, and to one hell of a writer. Thank you for the years of pleasure and pathos you’ve afforded us. Best wishes from my whole family. We’re all rabid fans!

Here’s an original piece of music, perfect for parading in Bughouse Square on Mr. Pinkwater’s Birthday.
It’s called “The Wobbley Walk”.

As a fan of Daniel’s books, herewith my warm birthday greetings. I read to 2nd and 3rd grade children in a LAUSD school and I use all the Larry books each year. The kids love them and I don’t tire of reading them-over ten years now.


Daniel, may you be happy in all your endeavors but most happy in yourself. Thank you for your stories.

Happy Birthday Daniel. I hoped to eat 71 Borgel Nuskies in your honor, but they’re proving difficult to find.

Mr. Daniel Pinkwater! Hail and bless you on this day that you joined the race. The world, and the life of the mind would not be the same without you! Happy birthday!!!!

Happy Birthday, Daniel.
Thank you for the amazing ways you make quality literature fun and appealing to children and adults. I first met you through Moose, and I wish you a wonderful gingerbread birthday cake!

My wife Robin and I wish Mr. Pinkwater a happy birthday and many good things in the year to come.

We recently had a little Borgel party in honor of our favorite time tourist, with whole wheat fig bars and homemade ginger beer. No popsicles though.

All the best,

Scott Malyszka & Robin Mandell
