I was able to conjure Daniel Pinkwater's fabulous voice over the weeks that I read this book aloud to my son a voice like a kind uncle's because I am so familiar with his years of NPR commentaries The book itself is fabulous and I mean that in both senses of the word Pinkwater is a fabulous fabulist with an intact sense of childhood wonder and an appreciation for wild storytelling He is Donald Barthelme for kids if you are familiar with Barthelme you may be put in mind of his story Some of Us Had Been Threatening Our Friend Colby it has that tone of the surreal and that play of languageThis book has many moments where the hero and narrator Neddie Wentworthstein gets to explain a little of this and a little of that and it makes for a great way to absorb certain assorted facts about trains about the ages of the Earth about shoelaces that you never know when you'll have an opportunity to repeat in some future conversation Writers and for that matter people who are like that make life interesting I don't want to spoil the story so let's just say it involves mainly ancient turtle creation myths ghosts famous Errol Flynn type actors military school nasty Hollywood studio heads train travel and of course the reuisite salvation of civilization by a Who Me type of hero What is it really about some may ask As John Barth might say it is about aboutnessEnjoy

Bestselling author Daniel Pinkwater's story of how Neddie How Neddie PDF #198 a shaman a ghost three pals and a maneuver known as the French substitution determine the fate of the worldMelvin the Shaman. One of the things I really like about Pinkwater's books is that they lack an urgent plot you never end up worrying too much about things working out or the kid being in Mortal Peril Instead you can enjoy the uirky details What stands out about this book to me is that this non urgency is brought to the foreground The main character is entrusted with the care of a stone turtle that has been passed from shaman to shaman for a long time The shaman that gives him the turtle is constantly reinforcing the idea that wherever the turtle is that's where it's supposed to be When the kid worries about losing it or having it fall into the wrong hands the shaman's attitude is basically that it will all work out because whatever's happening is supposed to happen It's refreshing
