Danny was an adventurous nerd. His friends were 2 professors ( Professor Branestawm springs to mind) and the books always had a maths/ science theme. The author was Jay Williams who collaborated with Raymond Abrashkin before he died in 1960.
The books are quite slim and can be read as a serial over a week or so. They feature a lot of technology which seems quite quaint nowadays. ( The last book in the series was written in 1977) I will put together a few ideas for a small unit to pop up on TPT over the weekend.
Below is a photo of one of the art ideas that the kids have been doing on Captains Courageous. ( more tomorrow)
We mowed the grounds today and the school looks great. The kids played today in the sandpit and created their own tabloid sports curcuit.
