Colby Sharp and I are on a quest to read every Newbery Medal winner.
See what Colby liked and disliked about Adam of the Road.
You thought I was joking when I said I took a lot of naps while reading this book.
Hmmm...I should have watched this video instead of reading the book. :)
This video was created for the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival.
"In my quest to give every Newbery-winning book a new cover, I hit books that could really use an update (*cough* Invincible Louisa *cough*) and others that really have a good thing going. Today is the latter, with a nice cover illustration by Robert Lawson (he who illustrated Ferdinand the Bull, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, and Caldecott-winning They Were Strong and Good, as well as author of many books including Newbery winner Rabbit Hill). But redo it I must, so let’s get to it." -Travis Jonker
Borrow Adam of the Road from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
