I serendipitously found a story I've been trying to find for years. It's a story I remember reading in school, maybe fifth or sixth grade. I think it was in a reader. I remembered the title as The Sveldt. But I've had it wrong all this time. It was The Veldt. "Veldt" happens to be the answer to a clue in the crossword I'm doing. I googled it to check if it was what I thought it was (yup), and links to the story came up. Yippee!! Now that I've piqued your curiousity, here's the story. Oh, I'm so pleased.
