Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sequel to critically acclaimed THE NEDDIAD told from the point of view of Ned's friend, Iggy

La Brea Woman is missing. Valentino, too. The ghosts of Los Angeles are disappearing right and left!

Iggy Birnbaum is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery, no matter what Neddie Wentworthstein and Seamus Finn say.

Theres just the little matter of traveling to another plane of existence, first…and then, of course, not pissing off a witch once she gets there.

From L.A. to Old New Hackensack, fans of The Neddiad will be delighted to join up with Iggy, Neddie, Seamus, and the usual apparitional entourage for another weird and wonderful adventure by Daniel Pinkwater. As Neil Gaiman said about the first book: "it's funny and tender and strange and impossible to describe. What Pinkwater does is magic and I'm grateful for it."

THE IGGYSSEY is vintage Pinkwater: laugh out loud funny, incredible characters, dialogue, humor. And like THE NEDDIAD, this book will be similarly illustrated throughout by Calef Brown.

Review:

"Like The Neddiad, this sequel packs wacky characters, absurd plot twists and improbable outcomes — and every page offers goofy, offbeat fun. The starring role this time belongs to the previously met Iggy Birnbaum, who proves a more level-headed narrator than Neddy, her predecessor, but the adventures of Iggy and her posse are just as far-fetched and comical. Iggy vows to find out why the ghosts that benignly haunt Hollywood have disappeared. After learning about a big supernatural shindig in a parallel universe, Iggy, Neddy and Seamus Finn head for the portal to that other world — and to whatever danger, mischief or world-saving awaits. As the title implies, the trio encounters an odyssey's worth of characters, among them Mama Banana and her dwarf-like, aging hippies; a feline-loving witch who seduces them with apple pie and threatens to turn them into purring, whiskered captives; and a sorrowful garlic farmer. With his trio once again victorious, Pinkwater serves up another dose of lighthearted entertainment. Ages 10 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

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.
