Read Pobby and Dingan

When Pobby and Dingan disappear and Kellyanne becomes heartsick over their loss does Ashmol realize that not only must he believe in Pobby and Dingan he must convince others to believe in them to. This was novella than novel and really a long short story than a novella But it was a VERY good long short story and it reminded me and at least one other reviewer a lot of a Down Under To Kill A Mockingbird with both Scout and Jem characters although in reversed roles and a dissolute Atticus it even ends with a trial From the very first line Kellyanne opened the car door and crawled into my bedroom Rice really conveys the sound feel and overall oddness of outback Australia without going into descriptive detail very nicely done and well worth the hour or two needed to read the whole thing In 2006 Australia made a low budget film version of PD retitled Opal Dream Not bad lacks the punch of the narrator Ashmol s uniue voice but then adds other scenes and characters that nicely fill out the rather sparse plot of the book In particular the trial scene is extended and rather nicely done rather than being merely sketched out by Ashmol who didn t actually attend SPOILER ALERT And the ending of the film is different from the story made upbeat in order to pass as feel good family fare But all in all not a bad adaptation
