i. love. ken. kesey.
i saw him tell this story in person. he wore a bandana and was so animated when he performed this tale. i can still hear his big booming voice reverberating between my ears and into my heart. little tricker was passed to him from his grandmother.

I had to cross this one in between picture book and juvie fiction. In it, Kesey shares a wonderful tale passed down through his family, plenty of voices and expressions to be used, great for a program when you have more than 15 minutes.

Who knew that, like James Joyce and Jenna Bush, Ken Kesey was a children's author? Anyone can do it, it seems. Just alliterate a lot. Like Ken:
"'You backwoods bully!' Sally hisses. 'You ridge-running rowdy!What are you doing down out of your ridges ripping up our rivers? This isn't your play puddle!'"
Apparently, this is a story that Kesey's grandmother told to him.
I'm a huge fan, and this made me ashamed for him. Ken, this isn't your play puddle.
