Book Report: The Neddiad

Your Humble Blogger had noticed, way back when, that Daniel Pinkwater was publishing The Neddiad on a website before publishing it as a bound book. I meant to keep going back and reading it, but never did. I suppose I didn’t have an aggregator in those days, and forgot to go back to the site. And I prefer, still, reading a book to reading on-line.

Well, and I eventually saw the book for sale and purchased it. So. Well done, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. If that’s still your name.

It’s terrific, but then of course it’s terrific; this is the sort of thing that Mr. Pinkwater does well, perhaps better than anybody. It’s a good thing to have a reliable writer, isn’t it?

Now, Mr. Pinkwater is again serializing a book previous to publication. It’s called Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl, and he’s on Chapter Sixty-Eight: The Ball at Spookhuizen, so my guess is he’s nearly finished. And if it’s like the last two, it will be taken down when the book is published, so read it now or, you know, wait for a bit longer. While you are at the site, you may want to take a peek at the Audio Archive; there are full recordings of Mr. Pinkwater reading The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death and Borgel and Blue Moose. And he’s adding to it all the time.

Tolerabimus quod tolerare debemus,


Well, and we just checked out Cat-Whiskered Girl from the library, so I don't know what's up with that.
