noah & saskia
I just ordered Noah & Saskia, which is an Australian kids’ television series about a British boy and an Australian girl, both 14, who meet online when Saskia discovers that Noah (or “Max” as his avatar in the graphic chat world they’re on) has stolen one of her songs and used it as a soundtrack for his comics without asking. To their surprise, they’re completely fascinated by each other. I bet my 8 1/2 year old will proclaim it “boring”, but I’ll watch it! Angela Thomas, who’s researching kids and identiy online among other things, writes many good things about the serial.
