Combining in a single volume a wealth of information that until now was scattered in different sources, this treasury highlights the books that have been awarded the most prestigious annual prize for children's literature in the United States-the Newbery. Arranged chronologically from 1922 to 1996, entries expand on the brief plot outlines usually given, update data to the present, suggest how the books can be introduced to young readers, and list an author's other titles. Detailed plot summaries describe the themes and subjects of the books, cite incidents for booktalking, recommend related titles, and provide background information about the books and authors that includes sources for additional information. Honor books (the runner-ups) are described in brief plot summaries (some reprinted from R.R. Bowker's Juniorplots series). A history of the award and a discussion of the award process are also included in this invaluable work.
