The Boy has been searching for a new series featuring an alienated boy since the Gregor the Overlander series ended, and The Wednesday Tales is definitely high on the list, currently running hard against May Bird.

Alienated Boy with Tiger trumps Alienated Girl with Cat AND Ghost, and that is why this review is about the adventures of Miles and Little and you will have to wait another week or so for a review of May Bird and the Ever After.

Miles Wednesday is an escaped, renegade orphan who lives in a barrel, does odd jobs around the town of Larde to support himself, and is the sort of nice, polite kid most of us would help out just because we admire his spirit.

Sure, life is hard, and he lives in a barrel, but that's okay because he doesn't live in the local orphanage, which naturally houses the expected orphan-based laundry.

Read the Amazon blurb for the actual plotline.

Go ahead -- I'll wait, and rejoin you tomorrow for my bits.
