Animal tales, weather wisdom and mountain mischief for all ages

Welcome to the website of New Hampshire author Eric Pinder. To find books, interviews, humorous essays, recommended reading, and more, please visit the annotated sitemap.

Hop on an elephant and discover what happens when hippos, lions and lemurs play hide-and-seek or tag indoors. Or come take a literary field trip to the icy outpost where Eric lived and worked for seven years. His experiences on the foggy, windswept summit of Mount Washington inspired several books, including his first children's book, Cat in the Clouds.

Weather aficionados can debate the merits of Celsius vs Fahrenheit, find out what ice storms and The Electric Company have in common, groan at some bad puns, and try to ace a fun but deceptively easy quiz.
