The Canadian Classic, written by Pierre Berton and illustrated by his daughter, Patsy is now a 26 episode animated children’s series on CBC television beginning Saturday, September 9, 2006. Berton often cited The Secret World of Og as his favourite of his forty-seven books. It has sold more than 200,000 copies in four editions.

The series follows the five Berton children, Penny, Pamela, Peter, Patsy, and baby Paul (better-known as “The Pollywog”) as they discover and explore a vast,mysterious world of caverns and rivers hidden beneath a trapdoor in the floor of their clubhouse. In their subterranean adventures, they befriend the little green inhabitants called Ogs, share their worldly knowledge with them, and, at the same time, gain a little wisdom themselves.

The series is directed by Paul Schibli who also directed the long-running CBC series The Raccoons.

Interest level: ages 6-10. When their baby brother, the Pollywog, mysteriously disappears from their playhouse, four children discover a hidden underground world full of little green creatures. A Canadian classic.

I would not consider this one of my all time favorite children's novels, but the novel was fun and engaging. The difficulty of the reading went unnoticed and as such must have been appropriate for my reading level at the time (I read this in the fourth grade if memory serves). The classic sort of magic children's adventure tale, Og reads like Narnia without the the barely concealed moralizing. Og revels in simply being a good tale, is all the better for it.
