The Newbery Challenge: The Door in the Wall

Hey, Mr. Colby Sharp! We made it to 1950. We only have a gazillion books left to read. 


Borrow The Door in the Wall from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops

Teacher-librarian Travis Jonker is "covering the Newbery." He designed the cover on the right. 

I'm guessing that at least one person who watches today's Newbery Challenge video will have difficulty identifying a few of the top-notch books spread out on my kitchen table, so I'm making that person's life easier by listing them below.
