The lovely and talented, prolific and beloved, adored and adorable Daniel Pinkwater is letting you read his latest book, The Yggyssy, for free. Seriously. You can go to The Yggyssy web site and read the whole thing there. It is subtitled “How Iggy wondered what happened to all the ghosts, found out where they went, and went there,” and if that doesn’t make you want to read the book than I don’t know what will. Have I mentioned my crush on Daniel Pinkwater? It all started with Lizard Music, perhaps the greatest book ever written about lizards and space invasions (and there’s a chicken too). I love his NPR spots as the Ambassador to Children’s Literature. Yup, a serious literary crush.
