Covering the Newbery (#40): Island of the Blue Dolphins
A story problem:
As of today there are 90 Newbery-winning books. My plan is to give each one a new cover. This is my 40th Covering the Newbery post. How many more posts will I need to complete the project?
Aw, man – I’m not even half way?! I better get crackin’.
1961: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell

Verdict: I think it’s hard to beat an actual human on the cover of a book, but my attempt might be a draw for the dolphin lovers out there.
Up next week: The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare
