The Yggyssey

I enjoyed tremendously reading Daniel Pinkwater’s The Neddiad online serially. Every week a new chapter was posted complete with some very cool small primary source illustrations. There was a very active forum as well where the Grand Poobah (aka Daniel Pinkwater) participated with enthusiasm. I was glad to see Esme’s enthusiastic review of the book and can add that one of my colleagues has been reading it aloud to her class and those kids are loving it. On Friday PE was canceled because of snow and I walked by her room (my kids were watching a video of no importance) and noticed them completely absorbed as she read and read and read. And I’ve just discovered (a litttle late, but so what) that he plans to do the same with the sequel called, what else?, The Yggyssey.
