  1. Snap! But you know, I think he meant the series as a whole, not the individual title. I’m sure he knows The Grey King won the Newbery….

  2. Quite so. I have to assume the reference is to the 5-book sequence . But even so, so much for Susan’s brilliant and award-winning KING OF SHADOWS, VICTORY, and other fantastic books she’s written since 1976!

  3. Inane comment, but even if it were the worst thing Susan had written, it would be wonderful to read. I can’t wait!

  4. Roger Sutton Roger Sutton says:

    Yes, he could have meant the series (and the italics indicating book titles are mine, not PW’s). But, as Emma Dryden suggests above, you had to go back almost forty years, dude? Harsh.

    And I’ll take King of Shadows over Silver on the Tree any day.
