New Zoo Reviews

A heartly jell-o to all in Upper Nonsensabad (and even those in Outer Nonsensisthan, even though they have stopped returning my calls). As I promised, I would let you know about the most recent reviews.

The IRSCL has put out TWO reviews, the first of which is available online: HERE. If any of the mellifluous (and melinquent) language in this one sounds familiar, then you have obviously read my introduction!

The ever-bedecktacled Dr. Joseph Thomas Jr. wrote a lovely review that appears in the IRSCL journal. Wanted dead or alive!

Lastly, Dr. Kevin "Bring me a Spigot" Shortsleeve wrote a lovely piece of pumice for the Children's Literature Association Quarterly. This is available through Project Muse (which you need to subscribe to or get through your library). Get to the article through this link, or in the ChLA Quarterly, Volume 33, Number 3, Fall 2008.

Work for the Anthology of World Nonsense is ramping up... more soon!

Blogger review USA

The US blogostemic blogiferator has turned its eyes to the Book, and Sepia Mutiny (yes) has given us a lovely review. Good to see that the book is actually on some shelves over here in the US, too. Check it out here.

Also, we doff our hats, spats, and polyunsaturated fats to Language Hat, who also gave us a splurb, referring to the above blog. Click here.

And here.

In other news, a few more reviews should be appearing in the near future... And, as the doctor said to the botfly-infested patient, I'll let you know when they emerge.

Winnipeg Wunnerful Wumplings

Ahh, Winnipeg in the spring! Last March, I visited the University of Winnipeg as an Overt Agent of Indian Nonsense. Through the kindness of the English department, and the Center for Research in Young People's Texts and Culture, meaning the munificent Mavis Reimer and cartesian Kevin Shortsleeve, I was able to lecture on Indian nonsense to the general community and visit Professor Shortsleeve's class devoted to nonsense. He beat me to the all-nonsense class, alas! Thanks to everyone involved--A foll-jolly time was had by all, and Indian nonsense continues to spread across the globe in a pandimensional pandemic of pandemonium.

Brief info on the lecture...

The USA Launch and more reviews

The USA launch of The Tenth Rasa achieved dizzying heights of Hogsbreathean Hopulence , with a crowd that included not only a few nonsense newbies but also some of the Boston area Indians. I was hoping Sarita Padki might make it, but I never heard back from the Padki camp. Hope all is well! During the proceedings, "The Bathing Hymn" intoned itself once again across the reverberating chambers of the Harvard COOP, and all was as it should be! Thanks to the Friends of Nonsense in attendance (established and incorporated unwittingly, on This Day, February Thirteenth, Two Thousand Eight, of all in attendance and even some in anelevendance).

Other news on the Indian nonsense front: two more reviews are due out soon. One from the Children's Literature Association Quarterly, and one from the International Research Society for Children's Literature. Stay tuned...
