Dan is the author of a whole bunch of books that are currently published (and worth seeking out in your local bookstore), and some that are on their way to being published (and worth looking forward to their arrival), such as the one that I am currently working on.

It should also be noted that PPWHYB appears here on the New York TImes Children’s Bookshelf.
