    2013-2014 Digital Breakfast Serials and News-100% SPONSORED
    Fully sponsored electronic delivery of The Detroit News Monday from September 3, 2013 through Saturday through Friday, June 13, 2014 includes Breakfast Serials, serialized stories for grades 4 and up. Breakfast Serials and other stories of interest to younger readers will appear in 34 Monday e-Edition of The Detroit News on the Young Readers e-Edition BONUS page beginning September 16.

    The 2013-2014 Breakfast Serials are:


    The Shadow of My Father's Hand: A Boy's Civil War Journal - Seventeen (17) chapters on Mondays from September 16 through January 20. (No chapters published December 23 & 30.) Written by Craig Crist-Evans and illustrated by Anna Rich.

    It's 1864 and the Civil War is still raging. This haunting personal war story, conveyed through a poignant narrative poem, is at once a story of family, of friendship, of the horrors of war - and of the lessons learned as they struggle for survival.

    The Monkey King - Seventeen (17) chapters on Mondays from January 27 through June 2 (No chapters published April 7 and May 26) - Written by Ji-li Jiang and illustrated by Hui Hui Su-Kennedy.

    The Monkey King is a partial retelling of one of China's favorite classics, Journey to the West - a novel of the Ming dynasty. Monkey is the most famous comic creation in Chinese fiction. It has been said, Monkey is mankind - full of faults, ambitious and vain. But he is also generous, valiant and intrepid. He is mischievous but also delightful. He cannot resist challenges; he loathes self-pity and above all, he despises despair.

    A teacher guide for each serial will be available for download, but activities will also be printed as part of the online page. Breakfast Serials are NOT part of print editions of The News.

    This is a pre-set program for:
  • Access to 30 or more Detroit News e-Editions - exact electronic replicas of the print version of the News - at school or home - plus BONUS Young Readers e-Edition only content on Mondays.
  • Delivery of 30 or more FREE BONUS print supplements several times during the 2013-2014 school year on TBD Fridays. Topics and exact dates will be communicated through the weekly DNIE Weekly News e-newsletter, which is sent Monday afternoon from Detroit NIE(dniewklynews@dnps.com.)
