Is little Nel dead?

Perhaps this has been done sometime in the last 10 years, but if so I've not heard about it. Check it out:

Rodman Philbrick's ''The Tinycawlers," a story for young readers, is being published in The Boston Globe on eight Tuesdays beginning today and ending May 30. The story will not be published on April 18.

You may recall Mr. Philbrick as the author of Freak the Mighty and The Last Book In the Universe. I'll be curious to see whether or not other newspapers around the country pick up this everything-old-is-new-again phenomenon.

Are you talking about the "phenomenon" of serializing stories? Cuz if so, the LA Times has the Kids Reading Room which every week has a five part story. This week's is written by Eve Bunting! There had also been a Sunday story, but there's a rumor it's being replaced. Bad LA Times. Bad.

You see! I didn't even know this. Is this a countrywide newspaper trend and I'm just too blind to see it? Or is it specific solely to LA and Boston?

As the Authority On All Things (AOAT), I simply have to shake my head on this issue and say you really need to look into it further to satisfy your curiousity. Cuz, uh, I don't know.
