This year’s patriotic plug. I read this 1944 Newbery Medal winner in the very early ’70s. I loved it back then – ignore the obvious Amazon spam reviews. I was, perhaps, overly obsessed with Johnny’s sliversmith-induced wound. And no, it’s not about noble Virginians, but rather those radical New Englanders. Heck, I went to college up North.
Happy Fourth. Throw another hot dog on the grill for me. As always, I’ll bring Mom’s potato salad (never tastes the same twice, but always good).
