Summary

"From [Daniel] Pinkwater we expect the pure wackiness of a mind given to bizarre bolts of imagination," declared Publishers Weekly. These four different stories — collected for the very first time — abound in hilarious situations and characters that will amuse young readers (and older ones too).
The Muffin Fiend. Someone has stolen all of Vienna, Austria's muffins, and the baffled police are forced to call upon their reliable consulting detective — Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who likes solving mysteries almost as much as composing great works of music!
Wingman. Donald Chen is the only Chinese student in his school, and to escape the inevitable bullying, he reads comic books on a bridge. There, he encounters the superhero Wingman, who shows him how a strong imagination can help weather hard times.
The Magic Goose. Seymour loves stories about magic, and he dreams of having marvelous adventures of his own. And that’s exactly what happens when he encounters a six-foot-tall talking goose, who takes him for an unforgettable ride.
Fat Men from Space. After a visit to the dentist, William discovers that he can pick up radio transmissions from outer space, where hungry aliens are plotting an invasion to snap up all of Earth's junk food.
"Pinkwater is the uniquest. and so are his books."  — Neil Gaiman.
