Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each year the John Newbery Medal and Newbery Honors are awarded by the American Library Association for the most distinguished American children's books published the previous year.

Collected here are selections from fifteen of the best-loved Newbery Medal and Newbery Honor books published in the twentieth century. With a brief summary of the book to precede it, each selection is complete within itself. We are introduced to some of the most memorable heroines ever created, from a wooden doll in Rachel Field's Hitty: Her First Hundred Years to the brave pioneer girl in Alice Dalgliesh's The Courage of Sarah Noble; from the young priestess who must make a life-altering choice in Ursula K. Le Guin's The Tombs of Atuan to the tough, determined girl who will do anything for her talented brother in Carol Fenner's Yolonda's Genius.

Readers will instantly admire and wish to emulate the remarkable girls they meet in these pages. A collection to savor and share, Newbery Girls will take its rightful place on the bookshelf alongside the Newbery books themselves.

A portion of the royalties from this book will be donated to the American Library Association, the administrator of the John Newbery Medal.
