ooh, i like grandma dowdel. hm.

and i totally know what you mean about not being able to read a newbery without Evaluating it.


I'm listening to this one right now - as read by the real Jack Gantos - and let me tell you, hearing it in his voice makes a difference. Of course, I'm only part of the way in, so I don't know how it will play out in terms of plot and all that, but I'm 100% sold on the tone of the book and the characters. I know what you mean about reading a book knowing it won X award, but with this one I can completely forget about the Newbery for nice long stretches and just enjoy the book.
