The Newbery Challenge: The White Stag

The White Stag is a fine example of why I often feel guilty for asking Colby Sharp to co-host the Newbery Challenge with me. Oh, it was a painful reading experience. P-a-i-n-f-u-l! Sorry, Mr. Sharp!

The Newbery Challenge: The White Stag

This picture is a little creepy.


Travis Jonker is redoing the cover of every Newbery-winning book. He designed the cover on the right.


Borrow The White Stag (ummm...not that I recommend you read it) from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.

  1. Mr. Schu, I enjoy your blog tremendously and get oodles of good book and school library ideas from you. Thank you for sharing your ideas!

    Just one thing -- do you show the mirror images on purpose (as in the White Stag cover photo above)? If not, and if you use PhotoBooth, there's a Flip option in the Edit menu that reverses the mirror image so viewers can read the words. That would be a very small improvement to an already wonderful blog.

  2. @Mrs. P. - The mirror image was intential. You can see other Newbery photos.I always go for a different photo effect: http://www.flickr.com/photos/litandmore/sets/72157628684678337/ Thank you for your comment. -John
