Welcome to Episode 6 of Young Mister Wugidgem. In Episode 5 we saw James and Dad narrowly dodge a crimson red laser beam, fired by an evil magician. Today we’ll follow James, Amos, and Grace as they ride their bikes along the river to the triple-trunk tree, where the beam originated, to look for clues. Then Mom enlightens James with her discovery about Dad’s magic. To listen to this week’s podcast, please click on the link just below:

Thirteen days ago I asked Stanford Professor Emeritus Nancy Huddleston Packer to read Young Mister Wugidgem and to write a review of it. I still can’t believe it, but here’s what she wrote:
“This book is a fantasy, a mystery, and a family saga all rolled into one. At the heart of the book are the charming Wugidgems: father Will, a professional magician, mother Joan, a very rational lawyer, the brave thirteen-year-old James, and the spunky little Sally. When evil forces threaten their family on James’s birthday, all four Wugidgems must awaken their slumbering magical powers to ward it off. In the process, they learnhow the past entangles the present. As the family work together to defeat evil and to escape from the past, their love and respect for each other are strengthened. All four Wugidgems are unusual, entertaining, and attractive. Every reader will have a favorite.”
Nancy is very incisive, and she captured what I am trying to achieve in this story. I am eternally grateful. You should check out her fourth collection of short stories, Old Ladies-Stories. Here is the link:
