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.

I'm not really into kids books, but Daniel Pinkwater writes his stories in the tone of a person writing out a journal. The Neddiad is a great example of his style. Short, quirky, loaded with odd names, vintage references, fantastical events and at least one character named Melvin.
Daniel Pinkwater himself is the perfect narrator for his stories. Something about his voice and delivery is so fun and endearing. Check out The Pinkwater Podcast for some examples of this if you don't want to jump straight to a purchase. He reads Borgel and Yobgorgel on his podcast, and they are also fantastic listens.
I'm a fan!
