Publisher's Summary

When young Neddie Wentworthstein is accidentally left behind by his family at a train stop in the Wild West, he suddenly finds himself at the center of a whirlwind adventure involving sinister villains and extraordinary new allies - all seeming to revolve around a little jade turtle given to him by a mysterious shaman. Daniel Pinkwater, renowned for making young readers grin and chuckle, creates an imaginative odyssey into 1950s childhood nostalgia in The Neddiad.

Lots of Chuckles

Think "The Iliad" - The Neddiad is a funny and engaging tale about the journey of a boy and his eccentric family. Entertaining and clever - this was a family favorite of ours this summer (children 7 & 9, girl and boy). We all agreed that Mr. Pinkwater's narration added to the ambience of the story. The audio quality was excellent.

So sad it's over

An enthralling story of heroic adventure. I kept reaching to put more time on my sleep timer. Bet it's a while before I find another I like as well.
