Newbery Challenge: The Trumpeter of Krakow

Head on over to Colby Sharp's blog to hear his thoughts on The Trumpeter of Krakow.

Newbery Challenge - The Trumpeter of Krakow

The Trumpeter of Krakow forced my eyes to close. It required cup after cup after cup of coffee to finish it.

Travis Jonker designed the cover on the right. His plan is to give every Newbery Medal winner a new cover. Nice work, Mr. Jonker!

I created this video for Colby Sharp when my head felt like it was going to explode.

Borrow The Trumpeter of Krawow from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.

    1. I've decided that my #nerdbery challenge will be to read all the Newbery winners that Sharp or Schu give 4 or 5 stars, and skip the rest. I'm impressed (and a little amused) by the willpower you two display in sticking with such obviously unpleasant books. That's commitment. Or something. :^)
