Susan Cooper’s Favorite Newbery

raskin westinggame Susan Coopers Favorite NewberyI have a special affection for The Westing Game (1979) because it reminds me of its author. Ellen Raskin was imaginative, witty, multi-talented, and great fun to be with, and she died much too soon at the age of fifty-six.
