Take a Trip Back In Time To February 13th
I just remembered this today. Once upon a time, roughly 2 and a half weeks ago, there was an article that I commented on entitled 2007 Newbery winners follow familiar themes. I would just like to point out my supreme amusement at this statement regarding The Higher Power of Lucky which once raised my ire, and now strikes me as quaint:
The Newbery selection committee is instructed not to look to the past, not to look to the accomplishments of authors, and not to judge current fiction by past benchmarks. That said, the 2007 committee has made a solid but safe selection, one that turns away from the bold choices of past years.Oh yeah? Who's bold now then? Eh? Eh? Ha ha ha!
