We are Doodeewaun
by Beryl Cahoon
Justin’s father carried a Thompson submachine gun. His mother was afraid of him and seldom came out of her room. His little brother, Brandon, had escaped into an imaginary world of forest friends called doodeewaun, with names like Mr. Giggiroot and Mrs. Figinee. When Justin saw the doodeewaun secretly retaliating against his father, he realized they were not alone anymore.
