Covering the Newbery (#20): Call it Courage
Covering the Newbery: redoing every Newbery-winning cover since, oh I don’t know, a few months ago.
1941: Call it Courage by Armstrong Sperry
Side by Side:
Verdict: Brighter, but not a huge success. The early cover gives a much better indication of the story.
