Newbery Challenge: Smoky the Cowhorse by Will James

Colby Sharp and I talk about Smoky the Cowhorse and the Newbery Challenge on the Nerdy Book Club blog. Head over there to see Colby's video.

Smoky the Cowhorse

How did Vincent van Gogh end up in my photograph?

OK, folks, this book trailer makes Smoky the Cowhorse look like the world's best book. Nice job, BubblyGumm!

Smoky (apparently Smoky the Cowhorse was too long) premiered on June 18, 1946. The next time I have insomnia, I'll see if it is playing on TCM.

Mr. Travis Jonker (aka Scope Notes) designed the cover on the right. His plan is to give each Newbery Medal winner a new cover

Borrow Smoky the Cowhorse from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
