And Other Selections by Newbery Authors
An anthology of stories edited by

Children's Literature
The selections in this book offer a glimpse into times past-they stretch from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. The eight stories included were written by Newbery-award winning authors. Heaven, friendship, the Wild West, the Amish and sharecroppers in the South are some of the subjects that come to life in the pages of this book. In Moses by Walter D. Edmonds, St. Peter, Daniel Boone, St. Francis, a hunter, an editor and others stage a protest to get a dog admitted to Heaven. Compelling plots, interesting characters and realistic dialogue characterize most of the selections in this title. Readers can read the stories in order or pick and choose as fancy dictates. Author biographies are provided at the back of the book, as is a list of Newbery-award winning books from the award's inception in 1922 to 2000. This title is one in the publisher's "Newbery Authors Collection" series. 2001, Gareth Stevens, $22.60. Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati
