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.

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.
