Recently, in those nanotech & multiverse-rich intersections of science fiction, reality, and pop culture reporting, there's been a lot of talk about the cable series “Battlestar Galactica,” many articles calling it “the best show you're not watching,” and then praising its astute mix of politics, alternate worlds, and raw human emotion.
Using many of these same criteria then, it's safe to call “Danger Boy” the best children's book series you're not reading. They're written by Mark London Williams, and published by Candlewick Press, perhaps the most “it” of kidlit publishing houses at the moment, being home base for Newberry-nabbing writer Kate DiCamillo, and just now grabbing a National Book Award for the in fact astonishing (and lengthily titled) “The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume One: The Pox Party,” by M.T. Anderson).
