Covering the Newbery (#53): The Slave Dancer
Here we are on Monday – the day I like to try my extremely amateur hand at giving Newbery-winning books new covers. It’s a just-for-kicks project that I’m calling Covering the Newbery.
1974: The Slave Dancer by Paula Fox
Verdict: Hmm – I can’t say I’m in love with this one.
Up next week: M. C. Higgins, the Great by Virginia Hamilton
