Davy - Edgar Pangborn (1964)

‘Davy is set in the far future if our world, in the fourth century after the collapse of what we describe as twentieth-century civilisation. In a land turned upside-down and backwards by the results of scientific unwisdom, Davy and his fellow Ramblers are carefree outcasts, whose bawdy, joyous adventures among the dead ashes of Old-Time culture make a novel which has been hailed as “a frightening, ribald, poignant look at an imaginary future,” as “this chilling and fascinating book,” as “superb entertainment… unique,” as “so unusual as to make it both refreshing and thought-provoking.”’ 334 more words

Teaching the Controversy (comic)

I taught a kindergarten class this book once and at the end of the story all the animals trample the crocodile, giving him back bumps. Stupid children’s stories, not abiding by the laws of genetics. 19 more words
