The Book Before the Movie
Look what happens when a flu rips through the Oakland Public Library, rendering its staff immobile for a week…
SLJ continues its coverage of the Newbery, including something to pass as controversy. I keep on misnoming Roger’s retort as "Put it Where You Put it," with an emphasis on the profane. I’m actually happy to see this controversy (which many try to use to bury the committee’s decision on Criss-Cross) circle back round to The Graveyard Book…which is just too popular to be buried. (We put ours everywhere.)
…Then there’s Monica’s well-timed review at the NYTimes…
…And, to warm my bacteria-ridden heart, the movie ad for Coraline with its super-title banner: "from…Newbery-Winning Author Neil Gamian"
They even spelled it right.
