Well This Just Throws the Whole Poetry Friday Idea for a Loop
Sometimes I would like a long list of Newbery firsts. For example, is this the first instance that a Newbery chair of a committee had a book of their own come out on the year they were serving? Probably not. But howzabout the first committee chair who had a book of POETRY come out on the year they served? Eh? Eh? Top THAT one, 'cause current chair Nina Lindsay's Today's Special Dish, due out in April, is currently being reviewed on 7-Imp. Jules and Eisha do, as you might expect, a top notch job of it. Really tap into the tenor and flavor of the book. It's worth your while to give their review a gander.
