The Neddiad by Daniel Pinkwater
This book, that takes place in the 1950's, is about a young boy named Neddie Wentworthstein. From Chicago to California, he finds himself in many "Wild West" type of adventures revolving around a little jade turtle that he receives from a shaman. I thought this was a good story anbd might be geared to the younger end of our audience. The style of this book reminded me of "Lizard Music" also by Pinkwater. I listened to the audio version of the book which was read by the author and he read so fast that it was confusing for me to follow along. The book was not exceptional by any means and I give it a NAY.
