Description
Big Audrey is a 14-year-old girl—with cat's whiskers, and sort of cat's eyes—in this follow-up to Daniel Pinkwater's The Yggyssey and The Neddiad, for readers 9 and up. But she finds out one day she is not the only cat-whiskered, sort of cat-eyed girl on our dimensional plane. Big Audrey waves goodbye to her friends Iggy, Neddie, Seamus, and Crazy Wig in 1950s Los Angeles and hitches a ride with a bongo-playing-while-driving Marlon Brando across the country to Poughkeepsie, New York, city of mystery, to find out about her doppelganger.

"She befriends a nutty professor and a young girl who is really a dwerg (a race of magical mountain people) from the local psych hospital. Together, they travel throughout Poughkeepsie and various dimensions trying to uncover Audrey's true identity. Every character they encounter is crazier than the next—a 114-year-old woman named Chicken Nancy; a Catskill Mountain Giant; members of a secret brotherhood from an alternate Poughkeepsie—and every chance encounter leads them to another zany adventure. Mixing the absurd with the profound, Pinkwater's odd narration will have even the most serious readers laughing at the chaos. As Audrey notes, 'Very often when crazy people are not actively being crazy, they are less crazy than regular people who are a little bit crazy at all times'."—Booklist
