Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl

by

Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Big Audrey is a girl . . .

with catandrsquo;s whiskers . . .

and sort of catandrsquo;s eyes.

But, is there an other cat-whiskered, sort of cat-eyed girl?

Big Audrey waves goodbye to her friends Iggy and Neddie, Seamus, and Crazy Wig, in Los Angeles and hitches a ride with bongo-playing-while-driving Marlon Brando across the country to Poughkeepsie, New York, city of mystery. She finds she has questions needing answersandmdash;and a bit of inter-plane-of-existence traveling to do.

Big Audrey and her telepathic friend Molly zigzag off on an incredibly strange and kooky adventure, and solve the mystery of the cat-whiskered doppelganger.

Synopsis:

A new YA novel in the style of THE EDUCATION OF ROBERT NIFKIN

Synopsis:

Big Audrey is a girl . . .with cats whiskers . . .and sort of cats eyes. But is there another catwhiskered, sort of cat-eyed girl?

     The hilarious story that began with The Neddiad and continued in The Yggyssey comes to its wacky conclusion—sort of—in Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl. Now in paperback, this is the perfect tale for any kid who likes his or her humor a little offbeat and characters that are uniquely their own.

About the Author

Bestselling author Daniel Pinkwater's story of how Neddie, a shaman, a ghost, three pals, and a maneuver known as the French substitution determine the fate of the world.

Melvin the Shaman. Sandor Eucalyptus. Billy the Phantom Bellboy. Daniel Pinkwater's weird and wonderful tale of Neddie Wentworthstein's quest to save civilization features some of the most unique heroes and villains a reader could hope to meet. Despite the heavy responsibility that Neddie must carry (not every kid is charged with rescuing humankind from doom), his story is hilarious, warm, welcoming, and sweet.

Daniel Pinkwater is crazy about writing, and has been trying to learn how to do it for fifty years. He has written about a hundred books, all but two or three of them good. People who own radios may know Daniel Pinkwater as a popular commentator and childrens book reviewer on National Public Radio. At one time, he lived in Los Angeles, went to a fancy private school with the children of movie stars, and ate in The Hat numerous times. He lives with his wife, the illustrator and novelist Jill Pinkwater, and several dogs and cats in a very old farmhouse in New Yorks Hudson River Valley.
