In 2002 Linda Sue Park won the Newbery Medal for A Single Shard, the tale of a ten-year-old orphan called Tree-ear who apprentices to a master potter. Guess which title below is her favorite Newbery-winning novel.

a) Criss Cross by Lynne Rae Perkins (2006)
b) Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson (1978)
c) I, Juan de Pareja by Elizabth Borton de Trevino (1966)
